The fan reaction to Siyabonga Nomvethe announcing his upcoming retirement hasn't slowed down.
One supporter pointed out that the former Bafana Bafana star played for eight years for six clubs. This started a funny reaction to what's Nomvethe's true age.
When you consider how strong he's been in recent seasons and that he's currently 40-years-old, no wonder the fans are amazed at his powers.
The former Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs hitman has been on the books of Usuthu ever since he departed Moroka Swallows in 2016, and he has continued to roll back the years with some stellar performances.
However, with Nomvethe turning 41 in December, he has now opted to hang up his boots in December, as he looks to make way for the future crop of talented footballers.

I think there was miscalculation.— SimCard (@CmphiweNtuli_) September 16, 2018
The 2000 folks are convinced it’s a miscalculation— Olwethu Sipuka (@osipuka) September 16, 2018
8 years in 6 teams = 48.— Mathanda (@MathandaNcube) September 16, 2018
Not sure about the 8 years story but what I know is he is a legend some players didn’t even last 5 years as professional players— Mamale Mamogobo (@axionteq) September 16, 2018
