SuperSport United’s general manager, Bafana Dhlamini, has retired from his position at the club and from the game.
Dhlamini’s retirement was announced on Monday night at SuperSport’s end of season award ceremony, where the club’s players and personnel were recognised for their contribution to their 2012/13 PSL campaign.

Dhlamini joined Matsatsantsa from the PSL and has been regarded as one of the best in his role within the South African football fraternity over the years.
SuperSport’s communication's manager, David ‘Mazolman’ Skosana, confirmed that Dhlamini has announced his retirement, while paying tribute to his contribution at the club.
He told Soccer-Laduma, “Yes, he will be leaving us and he will be retiring from the game. He is a wonderful man and we worked well together. He he is one of the most educated guys in football and holds a Master’s degree. When we recruited him from the league, we knew we recruited quality.
Skosana went on to wish him well, “Football has lost in him but no one is indispensable and we will march on. We wish him well and all of the best.”
