Hlatshwayo Not Ready To Retire
Former Bafana Bafana captain Thulani Hlatshwayo has assured football supporters that he still has a lot to give in his football career.
‘Tyson’ has confirmed that he hopes that he will be still playing for the next five years, despite turning 32 in December.
Hlatshwayo joined Orlando Pirates last year from the now defunct Bidvest Wits FC and became the captain under former coach Josef Zinnbauer last season.
“For me in the next five years, I’ll keep going as long as I can, because God gave me the talent and God is the only one who can take it,” he told PSL Now.
“And I don’t think I’ll be lost in a game, because that’s all I know in my life. The game of football has taught me about life. I’ve learned about life after football. So for me, that’s in the next five years I will still be running.
“Now I’m 31 I’m turning 32 in December this year, for me, I’d say is to give back to the game. And now because as footballers we can never, ever repay what the game has done for us. I feel like the game has changed our lives.
“The ball is pumped, it bounces for anyone you know, and it doesn’t know who pumps it. And for me to give back to the game is to really do well, to be an example to another Tyson to another Thulani. And have another Thulani and not only as a team, but as a country to be in a national team.”
