Yeye Clarifies Retirement Rumours

Despite currently being the oldest player in the DStv Premiership, TS Galaxy midfielder Reneilwe Letsholonyane has moved quickly to dismiss any talk of him retiring any time soon.

He into his 14th season in the PSL and he is showing no signs of slowing down, a fact that is credited to his clean living and pure desire for the game he started playing as a little kid.

Yeye cut his teeth with Jomo Cosmos in the PSL in 2006, before a successful spell at Kaizer Chiefs, which was followed by more success at SuperSport United, before he moved onto Highlands Park in the 2019/20 season.

When his contract with Lions of the North came to an end at the end of last campaign, there was talk that the man born in White City, Jabavu, would call it a day -but as he has throughout his career, the dreadlocked midfielder defied the odds when he was unveiled as a TS Galaxy player in the inaugural DStv season.

“I’ve never said, I’m retiring. If I’m retiring, it will be clear that I’m calling it quits. I can’t say I’m retiring and then post Highlands Park jersey alone out of all the teams that I’ve played for. I’ve played for Jomo Cosmos, Kaizer Chiefs and SuperSport United previously. I didn’t have a lengthy stay at Highlands Park. Why would I retire and then post the only jersey of the team where I had a shortest stay?” Yeye explained to TS Galaxy’s official website.

“It doesn’t make sense but obviously someone didn’t do his job properly in the media space. They decided to write what they wanted to write. Maybe those people knew that it will attract more people to their publication. In short, I didn’t say I was retiring but I said, I’m closing the chapter of Highlands Park. My contract at that time had ended. I was moving to another journey and challenge.”

Meanwhile the 38-year-old, whose side has enjoyed an unbeaten start to life in the elite league, says there are no limits to what the side from Mpumalanga can achieve this season. According to Yeye, the league title is a realistic target. 

“We can go as far as (number) one in the league. It is going to be a huge challenge but if we put our mind into something, keep working hard and stay humble and don’t tell ourselves that we’ve arrived, we will qualify for top eight and go as far as we can,” Letsholonyane added.
