Ex-chiefs striker | Before and after retirement from football

In South Africa, we always get too excited about news signings that don't live up to the hype. In some situations, these experts are often over their heads.

Some of these footballers are good players, and it's still not clear why they did so poorly.

During the time of the PSL, the DStv Premiership team Kaizer Chiefs hired some of the best football players from the other side of the Bietbridge border post. Tinashe Nengomasha, Willard Katsande, Knowledge Musona, and Kelvin Mushangadzike are just a few that come to mind. In the second case, his signing caused a lot of buzz because he was seen as a possible replacement for their troublesome star player Jabu Mahlangu, who used to be called Jabu Pule.

Mushangazhike was hyped up before he joined Kaizer Chiefs, but he never lived up to that promise. Four years later, when Mushangazhike was still at Garankuwa United, his visa had run out and he was sent back to his home country. His career went downhill after the tragedy because it made him feel bad about himself.

After a time in Mozambique, he would finally end his career in 2009. After he stopped playing football, the newspaper headliner from his playing days was back in the news when it was said that he was having money problems and was living on his mother's property in the Harare suburb of Budiriro.

We were able to find some recent pictures of him on social media, and from what we can tell, he is not living as well as most of his retired industry colleagues. From a distance, it's safe to say that he no longer goes to the places he used to, and instead hangs out with regular people in his home country.
