Many players in the top tier of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) have announced their retirement from the sport after only a few years of participation.
Only a small percentage of those who try it have found success in their new career path.
In South Africa, Thabani Bhengu is one of just a few of players who retired at the tender age of 20 and went on to become household names. The KZN-bred footballer has decided to create his own farm.
Former footballer leased land from the Ingonyama Trust Fund, which owns a large stretch of land outside of Weneen. Ndela Farming, the previous wonderkid of Jomo Cosmos Development Academy, is now a subsidiary of Ndela Farming, which provides fresh produce to residents and major retailers.
After finding his life's calling, Thabani Bhengu began breeding cattle. The KZN native, who recently announced his retirement from competitive sports, decided to share a video of his cow herd on Instagram Stories this past Wednesday. Photos posted to Instagram show that Thabani Bhengu's homestead looks to be home to more than 50 animals.
The farmer-turned-former player Thabani Bhengu chose to share glimpses inside his farm's latest cow auction via Instagram stories, too. We recently learned that animals are auctioned off according to their kilogram weight.
For example, it is safe to presume that a product of the Jomo Cosmos Youth Academy is a successful farmer.
