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

A man that made his Professional debut on 23 July 1997 in a final score of Amazulu 4 Africa Wanderers 0 finally retires in 2019! What a journey, what a talent, what a humble man!
