Former Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Lerato Chabangu has been handed a life-line by ABC Motsepe League side Baberwa FC.
Chabangu made headlines late in 2018 when a frail-looking picture of the former Bafana Bafana man holding a beer bottle while dressed in dirty clothes made the rounds on social media.
He has since received a lot of assistance to revive his soccer career that took a nosedive amid off-field issues, after he appeared on Robert Marawa’s show on Metro FM.
The 33-year-old Tembisa-born attacker has a chance to once again prove to doubters that he still has what it takes to show his silky touches on the field of play and why he earned the nickname ‘All You Need Is Love’.
He will join other ex-PSL stars at the club like Luyolo Nomandela and Khethokwakhe Masuku, as well as the former Kaizer Chiefs trio of Lucky Khune, Mthokozise Yende and Tefu Mashamaite.
The Royals currently top the log standings with 42 points, four points ahead of second-placed JDR Stars with just under 10 matches left.
