Clubless ex-Chiefs man turns to teaching


Clubless former Kaizer Chiefs player Letlhogonolo Mirwa has turned his attention to books following his continous struggle to find a new team.

The left-back's talent and quality was evident in the 2018/19 season when he signed for the Glamour Boys straight from amateur club Buya Msuthu FC, who were campaigning in the ABC Motsepe League.

He was unveiled alongside big-name international stars like Khama Billiat and Andriamirado Andrianarimanana.

But the presence of Godfrey Walusimbi and Siphosakhe Ntiya-Ntiya made it difficult for Mirwa to make the most of his opportunity at Amakhosi and his stay there only lasted one season.

"I'm busy with school these days, studying education, teaching," Mirwa tells

"I started this year actually. This is what I'm going to do for these next days. Most of the time I will just do the long distance online learning, so I think that's what everybody does. Due to Covid-19 we are not going to participate in sports activities [amateur football] until we are allowed.

"So in the meantime I'm just studying. I love geography so I think I'm going to focus on that and physical science probably, and economics. It will have to he a degree because I'm going to invest so much time in it, I think three years."

"I think the most important thing is to exercise the brain," he continues.

"If you exercise the brain then everything in your body will function very well. It's not like I'm taking my focus away from football, but I'm accepting the situation as it's panning out... I mean I currently don't have a job in football that I can say I'm contracted to.

"I haven't retired, it's just that I haven't had an opportunity to play you understand. I do understand that someday things will be different though."

Mirwa was asked about the book he said was writing last year July.

"You know when you write a book you have to write something that is going to be forever you understand. So that depends on the time that you have invested in the book to last. So the book, it should not be expected anytime soon."

At only 25, Mirwa could still add value to any DStv Premiership or GladAfrica Championship club for at least the next seven to 10 years.
