With football being such a short-lived career, many soccer players continue to ply their knowledge into different avenues as they plan for life after football.

Many players in the past have failed at planning aptly in due time, and have thus found themselves in the gutters. 

For Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Brylon Petersen, preparing for life after football is already in the pipeline after graduating with an Engineering Degree from the University of Witwatersrand (Wits University).

Petersen, 25, completes a list of a few footballers in the country who have set time aside to juggle both football and studies.

With his latest achievement, his club took to its official Twitter page on Sunday to congratulate the young goal-minder on his latest feat.

Petersen is yet to feature in an official match since being re-signed by the Glamour Boys in 2019.

He has fallen down the pecking order behind Daniel Akpeyi, Itumeleng Khune and Bruce Bvuma.

With former Bidvest Wits goalkeeper Brandon Peterson currently undergoing rehabilitation at the club under the watchful eye of Gavin Hunt, with the hope of winning a contract, it's still unknown if the club will let go of one of their keepers or rather utilize them for the reserve side.
