From KZN to America | Meet the ex-Chiefs player who is now a USA citizen

PSL footballers are perhaps the most loved top athletes in South Africa. However, it is not just love what they earn when they are on the field on play. They not only grab everyone's attention, admiration and respect but they also go to inherit fortune and fame.

However this can always not be this case when they decide to retire. In most instances circumstances can become so drastic that some PSL footballers go to do jobs they have never dreamt of.

Frankly, it is beyond our imagination that a person can earn over a million rand a month by doing what they love. Actually there are some PSL footballers who became successful before they pulled on their soccer boots and some when the waved goodbye to the sport we all love. Talking about a former PSL footballer who became successful upon retirement then we do not have to look any further other than Marco Mthembu.

The KZN born midfielder was a key member of Kaizer Chiefs during the "Operation Vat Alles" era in the early 2000s. In his illustrious he would also have the opportunity to play for Mamelodi Sundowns and Ajax Cape Town before deciding to retire in 2005.

We have since went to learn that the former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder is now based in the USA after relocating with his family. According to sources he currently works as the Men's and Women's soccer Head Coach at Texas College. According to information collected we would also go to learn that he currently holds a dual citizenship from South Africa and the United States of America (USA).

As the USA is largely known as the land of milk and honey, it is safe to say that Marco Mthembu is one of the former PSL footballers who became more successful upon retirement.
