Yeye Calls It A Day On Legendary Career?

Former Kaizer Chiefs, SuperSport United and Bafana Bafana midfielder Reneilwe Letsholonyane appears to have closed the curtain on his glorious career.

The 39-year-old, who was the oldest player in the DStv Premiership last season on the books of TS Galaxy, took to social media to post what appears to be a farewell video to the beautiful game.

Watch it here:

A ‘late bloomer’ to the professional scene at 24, having broken into the professional ranks with Jomo Cosmos back in 2006, the man from White City in Soweto enjoyed a successful career that saw him turn out for the likes of Kaizer Chiefs, SuperSport United and Highlands Park.

It was during his spell with Amakhosi where Letsholonyane enjoyed a trophy-laden period. Amongst his list of accomplishments with the Glamour Boys is two league triumphs, two MTN8 crowns, a Nedbank Cup and two Telkom Knockout trophies.

He also added an MTN8 and Nedbank Cup triumph with Matsatsantsa A Pitori.

A member of Bafana Bafana’s 2013 AFCON and 2010 FIFA World Cup squads, the dreadlocked midfielder amassed 50 caps for his country, scoring two goals in that period.

In his last season with the Rockets, ‘Yeye’ managed 11 appearances, all of them as a sub.

Already having an eye on the next step of his career, Yeye has been hard at work pursuing his coaching badges as he looks to take the well-travelled road into professional coaching.

Letsholonyane has also been doing work in promoting the upcoming Carling Black Label Cup alongside TV pundit and former Orlando Pirates striker Phumudzo Manenzhe.

Despite attempts by the Siya crew, Letsholonyane was not available for comment at the time of publish.
