Siyabonga Nomvethe - Kaizer Chiefs
One of South Africa's greatest ever players talks to broadcaster Robert Marawa about hanging up his boots

Former Bafana Bafana forward Siyabonga Nomvethe finally retired last season, having last played for AmaZulu in the Premier Soccer League (PSL) at the age of 41.

The KwaZulu-Natal man started locally at Sabatha FC, Durban Cosmos, Claremont Blizzards and African Wanderers.

He then went on to make a name for himself at Kaizer Chiefs, becoming an important Bafana player before earning a move to Udinese in Serie A.

As the years went by he also played for Empoli in Italy, Swedish side Djurgårdens, Danish side Aalborg BK and returned to South Africa to play for Orlando Pirates and Moroka Swallows.

He earned 81 South Africa caps in the process before returning to KZN with Usuthu.

Below, we watch Nomvethe catching up with the media at Marawa TV where he is asked why he doesn't play on.

Nomvethe returns the joke by saying many felt he would keep playing until he gets a walking stick.

Watch the interview here, thanks to Marawa on Twitter.
