Ex-chiefs striker | Before and after retirement from football

In South Africa, we have a habit of overreacting to news signings that do not live up to the expectations that were set for them. These professionals frequently find themselves in situations that are beyond their capabilities.


Even if some of these footballers are skilled players, the reasons for their bad performance are still a mystery.


A number of the most talented football players from the South African side of the Bietbridge border post were recruited by the Kaizer Chiefs of the DStv Premiership back when the PSL was in session. The names Tinashe Nengomasha, Willard Katsande, Knowledge Musona, and Kelvin Mushangadzike immediately come to mind as just a few examples. In the second instance, his signing produced a lot of noise because it was thought that he may be a prospective replacement for their troubled star player Jabu Mahlangu, who was formerly known as Jabu Pule. This led to his signing.


Before joining Kaizer Chiefs, Mushangazhike had a lot of excitement surrounding him, but he was never able to live up to that promise. After another four years, Mushangazhike's time at Garankuwa United was cut short since his visa had expired and he was required to return to the nation of his birth. Because of how the tragedy made him feel about himself, his career took a turn for the worse when it occurred.


After spending some time in Mozambique, he decided to call it quits in 2009 and retire from the sport. The newspaper headlining from his playing days was back in the news after he left playing football when it was reported that he was having money troubles and was living on his mother's home in the Harare suburb of Budiriro. This headliner was a football player during his playing days.


We were able to locate some new images of him on social media, and based on what we can tell, he is not doing as well in retirement as the majority of his former colleagues in the sector. It is safe to assume that he no longer frequents the locations where he used to hang out and that, instead, he prefers to socialize with everyday citizens in the nation where he was born.
