Kaizer Chiefs’ in-form midfielder, Mandla Masango, is studying in his spare time as he looks to prepare himself for life after football.
The 25-year-old, who has scored four goals in the PSL so far this season, says that he wants to make sure that he’s prepared for when the day comes that he has to hang up his boots.
While Masango is still a long way away from that day, he told Chiefs’ official website, “I am studying project management at Boston City Campus. I want to have a solid background when my soccer career comes to an end. It is not easy due to the team schedule though. I have already bagged a General Management Diploma last year.”
Meanwhile, when asked about his recent Bafana call-up, Masango said, “It shows perseverance pays. It's an honour and a privilege to play for the national team. My mother couldn’t believe it when she heard my name. Everyone is happy to see me playing in the national team, it has been my childhood dream to don the national colours at the highest level.”
Masango is currently the PSL’s joint top goalscorer alongside teammate, Reneilwe Letsholonyane, Chippa United’s David Zulu and Lerato Chabangu of Moroka Swallows.
