Former Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns striker Katlego Mphela has given an indication of what he will do now that he’s hung up his playing boots.
Mphela has been voted amongst the MTN8 Legends for the 2019 campaign, which currently sees only four teams remain following the opening rounds of fixtures played last weekend.
The 34-year-old was last on the books of GladAfrica Championship outfit Royal Eagles in 2017 before an injury saw his fade into limbo without kicking a ball for two years.
Having confirmed his retirement from professional football, the former Bafana Bafana star has since mapped the way forward and assured he will not be lost to football.
“When I get time, I do help an academy in Kempton Park – I think it’s a new one and they call me every now and then to come and help the kids,” Mphela tells KickOff.com.
“I do soccer clinics as well, and I’ve just opened my own foundation. I want to also get my [coaching] badges because I think I’m too passionate about football to just leave it behind.
“So, I think I’m still going to get involved, and I’m still young man, so time is on my side. I want to do everything in the right way – have my papers and qualification then we’ll see from there.”
