Chabangu: Why I want to retire

Premiership

Ex-Mamelodi Sundowns and Moroka Swallows star Lerato Chabangu has broken his silence regarding his pending retirement from football.

According to Gomora United boss Joe Seanego, the ex-Bafana Bafana midfielder will be taking up a position as a technical advisor at the club.

'All You Need Is Love' says the long break taken by amateur football due to the coronavirus pandemic has given him no choice but to consider hanging up his boots.

"Eish it's this Covid, we've stayed so long without playing football, so it's tough," Chabangu tells KickOff.com.

Chabangu says his dream was to become a coach when he retired but he is unable to find investors who will pay for his studies.

"It's just that I have to think of something new to do. I haven't taken a decision. As a player it's important to play. Anything that can come I will deal with it, but the thing is the investors are no longer that much."

The 35-year-old says the reason he hasn't informed his family or announced his retirement is due to the fact that nothing has been finalised with the Gomora management.

"At home they still have no idea I'm about to retire because I haven't seen the club owners since last year at Baberwa," he explains. "We haven't decided what's going to happen you see."
