Highlands Park midfielder and Premier Soccer League (PSL) veteran Reneilwe Letsholonyane is already planning for life after football and is preparing to start his UEFA B Coaching License through the Scottish Football Association. In doing so, the former Amakhosi star, nicknamed ‘Yeye,’ is following in the footsteps of fellow ex-Bafana Bafana stars Benni McCarthy and Steven Pienaar.
Speaking on SL Radio's 'The Big Interview,' Yeye explained his plans for the near future; “I’m now enrolled with the Scottish FA via an agency in Cape Town. I’ll be doing my online B license next month for five days. And then next year, obviously the days are not yet confirmed (due to the COVID-19 pandemic), [I’ll] finish off the license with the practicals.
"It’s one of those things that I’m doing as well to equip myself with knowledge so that when I decide to retire, I know that whatever position, whatever it is that I want to do, I qualify for that. Not because I played, but because I’ve also got the papers to back me up.”
Yeye discusses his business partnership with former Chiefs teammate Siphiwe Tshabalala, the PSL restart and much more in his interview with host SL Radio's host, Sloo Phaho.
