Kaizer Chiefs

At 25, From Naturena To Teaching

A former Kaizer Chiefs player has plans to become a teacher and is already taking the right steps toward achieving this goal.

Yusuf Bunting last week confirmed to the Siya crew that he has received his payout from Chiefs, after he was released by the club in 2019 with two years still left on his contract. The 25-year-old has been out of the game of the since then, but he has not been at home twiddling his thumbs.

Bunting, with support from his parents, has been studying teaching while he has been out of the game. That, however, does not mean he wants to stop playing. The striker still has plans of making a return to the Premier Soccer League, but he understands that there is a need to have something to fall back on.

"Luckily I have got my parents on my side, so they gave me their support. But technically the only support I needed was for my studies. I am in my final year with my studies this year. I am studying teaching. I am going to go into it. So, I am going to do my normal teaching degree and then I am going to do a sports management degree afterwards," he told the Siya crew.

"I can teach any subject at school, that's no problem. But because I have been on the sports side, I would like to go into a sports curriculum at schools. You know these private schools look for teachers with sporting capabilities, so that's actually what I am looking into. I am not a person to go sit at a desk from 09h00 to 17h00. I'd rather help kids that are aspiring to become professionals in future."

That's not all Bunting has been up to.

"I was actually also doing personal training, just for youngsters in my hometown. There are so many youngsters who have talent, but not all of them are seen or heard of."
