Outgoing SuperSport United midfielder Reneilwe Letsholonyane has stated he will continue playing professional football next season.

Recent reports have indicated that the 37-year-old player could retire when his contract with Matsatsantsa expires at the end of this month.

“I have not retired as yet. I will play football next season and for now, I cannot talk about the club that I will join until the end of this month,” Letsholonyane told Isolezwe.

The veteran midfielder has been linked with his former club, Kaizer Chiefs having helped the Soweto giants lift two Premier Soccer League (PSL) titles.

“News that I am going back is just a rumour. For now, I am planning on starting a new life somewhere,” continued the former Jomo Cosmos midfielder.

A look at his contribution at SuperSport, the dreadlocked midfielder lifted the MTN8 Cup and the Nedbank Cup and he also helped the team reach the final of the Caf Confederation Cup in 2017.

“I enjoyed my stay at SuperSport and I was happy to play for them. I won trophies, I played in six Cup finals and we challenged for the league title,” said the former Bafana Bafana midfielder.

With Chiefs having failed to lift any silverware since Letsholonyane's departure, the club fans have been calling for the playmaker’s return to the Naturena-based side.
