Katlego Mphela moves to car sales after retirement

One source told ZiMoja that after hanging his boots, he had a backup plan disrupted by Covid 19 when he was hosting private soccer lessons. When he was contacted for a comment, he snubbed the publication, saying:
"I don't owe anyone any explanations about my life or my career," Killer said.
Old Mutual's John chats to Briefly News about how footballers can avoid retirement disappointments
John MAnyike, who is Old Mutual's resident financial advisor for I Blew It Second Chances, shared a tip for soccer stars who are still raking in big bucks:
"If you earn R100K a month, don't take it as it is because the normal retirement age for soccer players is 35 years old. So rather leave half of it and invest the other half, or start a side hustle to have something to fall back on for when you retire."
