The Letsholonyane family has a strong relationship with Kaizer Chiefs . It is very difficult a Kaizer Chiefs fan to say that he or does not know Yeye Letsholonyane unless if he or she started supporting Amakhosi yesterday or last week . But a true Amakhosi fan it is a must to know Yeye and to also have respect for him.
Tshidiso Letsholonyane is the brother of former Amakhosi star Reneilwe .The 28-year-old Soweto-born ex-footballer is now Kaizer Chiefs’ under-17 coach.
“I felt I no longer had the desire to play football and that’s when I decided to take a different route‚” he said.
“I decided to go to school and do a short course to help kickstart any role in a football environment‚” he said.
“I did a sports coaching science course with [Randburg-based] Trifocus Fitness Academy. As part of the course‚ I was expected to do practicals and shadowing in a football environment.
“I am glad Kaizer Chiefs offered me the opportunity to do my practical in the development academy.”
“I was loaned to a National First Division side Dynamos FC‚” he recalled.
“I was there for a season but didn’t get that much game time. It was a disappointing experience for me but I never looked back. I continued to focus on the future.”
“I have so many coaches I look up to. I’m still young and I am planning to acquire as many qualifications as possible‚” Letsholonyane said.
“I plan to learn as much as I can and grow not only as a coach but also as a person that the kids look up to.”
Do you think also the big brother will retire at Chiefs ?
