Chabangu returns, crisis explained


Troubled midfielder Lerato Chabangu has returned to Baberwa FC after being AWOL for two weeks, but his problems are not quite over.

The 33-year-old was recently given a lifeline by the Gauteng ABC Motsepe League side’s chairperson Joe Seanego, but it seems he is battling to overcome the demons that ended his professional career.

According to Seanego, the former Mamelodi Sundowns and Moroka Swallows star resurfaced at the club on Thursday.

"He came yesterday thanks to you and KickOff," Seanego tells

"Our agreement with him is to help him you see. I just told him you are training with the team, you will be part of the team, because he still wants to play football. It's just that there are these things that disturb him a little you see. We just want to help him to have a good life as well.

"The explanation he gave us is that in the past two weeks he was fixing some other stuff. You remember he had a house in Boksburg? So apparently that house was being auctioned out, so he was busy with those things.

"But there is some money he was supposed to get from that house because he had already paid a lot of money for it. So it was auctioned because he could no longer take care of it. So I think that was the main thing he was sorting out.

"Yes, he had a house in Boksburg but now he has moved out, back to Tembisa to stay with his mother. But Lerato is okay you know."
