14 Sep 2018, 12:05

Striker Siyabonga Nomvethe, 41, has retired from AmaZulu but will continue to be part of the team until December when his contract expires.

Nomvethe will still be available for first team action as he waits to hang his illustrious boots at the end of the current season.

“It is time for all South Africans to give Bhele a big send-off. He has had a massive impact. I will be busy working on my foundation. For now, I can’t say too much but you will know soon what my future plans are. I have played all over the world. Scored in the World Cup. Won awards but for me, the most important thing was to keep playing and enjoying football. It’s time for the youngsters to take over. Football is about playing with the heart. I have done my part. I am very happy. It is time to say goodbye. Thank you to everyone who supported me along the way,” Nomvethe said as he announced his retirement.

He won the Premier Soccer League Football of The Year and Lesley Manyathela Golden Boot award at the age of 34 with Moroka Swallows in 2011/12. He won the same award with Amakhosi in 1999/2000 season.

He has played once this season in a 0-1 loss to SuperSport United on August 8th. He scored 2 goals, provided one assist in 21 appearances last season.
