SuperSport CEO Stan Matthews paid tribute to Katza and wishing him all the best in future endeavours.

“Ricardo has earned his place as a legend at Supersport United. As a former captain, he helped us make a record five consecutive domestic cup finals as well as lift the league championship for three consecutive years. He is the second most capped player at Supersport United in our history and beyond his achievements on the field, he has conducted himself as a true professional and family man.

“He is a true role model of a person and a player who was determined to improve his life, live a responsible and disciplined life and prioritise his lovely wife Adelaide and his kids in his decision-making processes. His move into the academy structures was smooth and he acquitted himself up and down our academy structures from Under 15 to our MDC team and first team.

“Ricardo will always have a special place in the annals of Supersport United’s history and we wish him and his family well in their new venture in Bloemfontein and in his promising career which lies ahead.”

SuperSport United next game will travel to Limpopo to face Polokwane City in an Absa Premiership tie, on 4th of April.
