The 39-year-old midfielder (Yeye) was just 26-years-old when he graced us with his talent on the field in 2008 while playing for the national team, Bafana Bafana. His notable career has led him to show off his skills within the PSL League playing for Kaizer Chiefs, Jomo Cosmos, Highlands Park, and SuperSports United while making South Africa proud in the 2010 Fifa World Cup and the 2013 African Cup of Nation. He has managed to lift 6 trophies while making 386 appearances for all the clubs he represented.
“11 years later and it still feels like it happened yesterday. One of the best moments of my life/career. Thank God that I was part of that 2010 World Cup group🙏🏾🙏🏾,” said Yeye early in June.
