Reneilwe Letsholonyane insists he is taking his coaching badges training serious, but that doesn’t mean he has called it quits in terms of his playing career.
Letsholonyane, whose career began 19 years ago, has been empowering himself with some coaching qualifications which includes a UEFA B licence and CAF C license coaching courses.
The 38-year-old quit at TS Galaxy in the middle of last season after making only 11 appearances at the Mpumalanga-based side.
Speaking to FARPost during his visit to our Polokwane offices, ‘Yeye’ as he is affectionately known within the football cycle, says he is using this pre-season to think of his next move.
“Most definitely I am taking this (coaching) very serious and that’s why I started this journey,” says Letsholonyane.
“I feel that is the road that I want to take post retiring. It is something that I need to be equipped and that is why I am doing it and I am learning a lot,” he said.
When asked if football supporters can still see him in action come next season, Letsholonyane said it’s something that he has not decided.
“Look it’s off-season now, people are relaxed, thinking and debriefing themselves as well, So it is no different to me, I am taking this time to think about the past season while learning obviously with the coaching badges and again thinking about the future.
“Whether I will be playing or not it’s something that I will decide obviously once I have done my coaching badges,” added the player who was part of the 2010 Bafana Bafana squad.
