THE Premier Soccer League (PSL) has expressed shock at the untimely death of Motor Action Football club founder Eric Rosen, describing him as a hard worker who helped to bring sponsors on board.

Rosen, who founded Motor Action Football club from the ashes of Blackpool in 2000, died in Harare at Borrowdale Trauma centre on Sunday morning.

He was 69.

The Sport and Recreation Commission (SRC) and ZIFA have also issued their condolence messages.

The PSL on Monday described Rosen as one of the pillars of the development of the topflight league since 2000.

“The Premier Soccer League is shocked and deeply saddened by the passing away of Eric Rosen,” a statement from the PSL said.

It added: “We would like to extend our most sincere condolences to Elizabeth Rosen and family. May the Lord be with you and comfort you and your family during this time of grief. Mr Rosen was one of the pillars of the development of the Premier Soccer League since 2000.

“He was a dedicated and passionate football leader and a fearless administrator who stood for what he believed was best for the game of football.

"He produced talented players such as Clement Matawu, Prince Matore, Marlon Jani and Musa Mguni to mention just a few. Mr Rosen and his wife Elizabeth developed a professional football club that was a role model to many clubs. The Rosens, together with Mr Simeon Jamanda, took the development of football to the city of Mutare.”

The PSL attracted a number of sponsors during the time Rosen was an executive member of the committee responsible for marketing. Eric, together with his colleagues, worked tirelessly to bring Supersport international to cover the PSL matches.

Rosen is survived by his wife Lizy and three children. Burial arrangements are still to be made.
