Former Kaizer Chiefs soccer player Mike Rapatsa has taken a different direction in his life as he gets ready to be ordained as a pastor in his church.
The retired striker has kept out of the spotlight since hanging up his football boots. Soccer fans took to social media to find out what happened to him, but the footballer managed to keep his life private.
“Any1 who knws wht happened 2 the former Chiefs players, Aaron Lubunda nd Mike Rapatsa??”, one tweep aksed.
A source close to the footballer confirmed he preferred to hid his life from the media, but he would still make time for fans who spot him in public.
“He is soon to become a pastor. He is very religious, and has kept his life private although people still want to take photos with him when they see him,” said the source.
The Citizen reported the former footballer also confirmed the reports. Speaking to Phakaaathi Plus last week, Rapatsa said he would become a religious leader.
“I am soon to be a pastor, and so am no longer allowed to talk about my past life. I would have loved to, but I can’t,” he was quoted saying.
