Motaung Jnr Nears The End

After a playing career that began in the youth structures of English Premiership giants, Chelsea, it appears that Kaizer Motaung Jnr is all set to hang up his boots. As revealed in edition 856 of today's (January 29) Soccer-Laduma in the Siyagobhoza story, 'Kaizer Junior To Retire', it seems the Kaizer Chiefs striker is close to bowing out of the game.

The 32-year-old has featured less and less in the last three seasons making just 11 appearances. He appears to be at least the fourth choice striker at Naturena behind Bernard Parker, Knowledge Musona and Kingston Nkhatha. Despite a seemingly underwhelming ending to his playing days, Motaung Jnr has enjoyed some success.

He spent the 2007/08 season in Europe with German Second Division outfit, 1860 Munich, where he scored four diving headers. Upon his return to Chiefs in his debut campaign, he was the club's leading scorer with 12 goals in all competitions as well. 

The Siya crew reported a few months back that the player had initially been talked out of retirement by the club's management. He was at the time persuaded to stay on until at least the end of his contract in June 2015.

Nonetheless, his continued lack of game time seems to have convinced him for a second time that it is time to retire. Sources at Naturena reliably inform the crew that he's nearing the end of his playing days, and is expected to make an official announcement on his decision in due course.

What's next after his playing career ends? Find out more about why Motaung Jnr could be swapping his Chiefs training kit for an expensive suit by getting your edition of Soccer-Laduma which is in stores and on sale now.
