Former Sundowns Midfielder Hangs Up Boots

Former Mamelodi Sundowns Midfielder Retires From Football

By Soccer Laduma - Jul 22, 2017 10:43 AM

Former Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder, Surprise Moriri, has retired from professional football as he looks to take the next step of his career.

The 37-year-old began his career in South Africa’s top flight for Platinum Stars, before making the move to Masandawana in 2004, where he experienced the most illustrious years of his professional footballing career.

Moriri has won several Absa Premiership league titles and cup competitions while donning the Ka Bo Yellow colours, however, the now-former player’s stay with the Chloorkop-based club came to an end last year, when the 37-year-old joined up with Highlands Park for his final stint at top flight football.

It has since been confirmed that Moriri has retired from footballer and is now on his way to begin a coaching career.

“Yes, I called it a day and starting with a coaching career. Looking forward and I’m excited,” Moriri told Soccer Laduma

The Siya crew revealed in December last year that the former player completed his CAF B Coaching License and indications are that Moriri will be looking to continue obtaining his coaching badges.

@Maserati112 and Adv Gerrie Nel will prosecute Zuma you are the one who is confused,we respect Moriri,him imparting his knowledge to our development structures will be good for him and those Downs kids,that would be a much needed experience for him,remember before he went to HP Motsepe offered him a non play contract of which he didn't accept because he wanted to continue playing,so don't vomit here we may have many suggestion about Surprise because we still admire him as our legend

the penalties he took,the goal he scored within 10sec frm centre mark,the goal celebration he perfomed with Siaka Tienne while humilating Bucs 4-0,reminds Me of the player with football brains!!
