Chiefs' Jambo Hangs Up His Boots

Kaizer Chiefs left back, Jimmy Jambo, has retired from football because of an occuring injury.

It was reported two months ago that Jambo was set for a pre-season return at Naturena, however after suffering a horrendous knee injury during the 2012/13 against Bidvest Wits in the Absa Premiership season, the Zimbabwean has now decided not to carry on playing, after failing to recover.

His retirement meant that another foreign player is now allowed to play for Chiefs following his early retirement. The news was confirmed during a press conference held by the Amakhosi.

Chiefs football manager, Bobby Motaung, revealed the news by saying, "I can tell you right now that the one foreign space in the team is the one which has been opened by Jimmy Jambo who had to hang up his boots."

The Amakhosi also took to their official twitter handle in confirming the news by tweeting, @Kaizer_Chiefs "Jimmy Jambo has decided to hang up his boots because of his injury."
