SuperSport chairman Khulu Sibiya has paid tribute to departed captain and goalkeeper Ronwen Williams.

Williams leaves as the DStv Premiership club's most capped player and received a warm farewell from his his old chairman.

Sibiya said in the Citizen: "When he got here, he was cool, calm and collected and sometimes I thought, 'is he not home sick?' He would sit in the corner and he would talk very little and I hoped he was okay. It turned out that Ronwen was watching and learning quietly and he learned the right things.

"Ronwen was a revelation, not only to me but to a number of people in the team. I have spoken to many of the players and asked them 'what do you think of your captain', and they have high respect for him.

"His impact has been just unbelievable."
