Veteran Striker Siyabonga Nomvethe Announces Retirement From Football

Veteran striker Siyabonga Nomvethe has announced his retirement from football at the age of 40, with the current season set to be his last in his professional football career.

The announcement of the former Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates striker’s retirement was confirmed by his club AmaZulu on Friday morning.

According to the club, Nomvethe will still be a part of their squad until December, when his contract expires.

Usuthu explained that Bhele will still form part of the KwaZulu-Natal outfit until the end of his contract, but the parties decided that they wanted to announce that the 2018/19 campaign will be his last season with the club and as a professional footballer.

“The former Bafana Bafana striker’s contract ends in December. He will remain a part of the Usuthu squad until then. A match in his honour will be announced soon,” confirmed AmaZulu on Twitter.

Bhele will be 41 when he eventually walks away from the game, and is the PSL’s all-time leading goalscorer with 121 goals.
