‘Killer’ Mphela Makes Shock Announcement!

Katlego Mphela has today revealed to the Siya crew that his playing days are very much over as he looks to begin life after football.

The former Bafana Bafana, Mamelodi Sundowns and Kaizer Chiefs striker has been out of action for two seasons now and had been contemplating hanging up his boots. Speaking to the Siya crew at the launch of the MTN8 on Wednesday, Mphela explained why he will not be on the pitch terrorising defenders anymore.

“I haven’t announced it officially, but I know in my mind and my body is telling me that I am done,” the 34-year-old said.

“The last season I played (for Royal Eagles) I tore my ligaments and when I got back I was not the same, and even now it still hurts. So I tried to do sessions with a couple of teams, but I can’t finish the sessions. Basically I am done. I have to be honest about it.”

Asked what his future will hold, the man who bagged 23 goals in 53 matches for Bafana Bafana at his prime said he would love to go into coaching.

“I don’t know for sure, but because of the passion I think I will do my coaching badges – and I have already started coaching young kids. I think I will do it, become a coach,” he revealed.
