Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper and captain Itumeleng Khune is now a graduate.
He was one of PSL players to graduate from the Gordon Institute of Business Science’s Player Transition Programme on Monday.
The football community has watched in horror as retired professional footballers struggle to adjust to life after hanging up their boots over the years.
And for that reason, the PSL and its sponsors, MultiChoice, worked together this year to introduce specific personnel to the PTP in an effort to help players secure their lives after football.
On Monday afternoon, the GIBS graduated its first class from the PTP after months of preparation for when their football careers end.
The PSL posted a picture of some of the graduates posing with MultiChoice and PSL bosses Calvo Mawela and Irvin Khoza on social media to congratulate the class of 2022.
“CONGRATULATIONS to the 2022 PSL Player Transition Programme graduates who were honoured earlier today at the Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS) in Johannesburg,” the PSL tweeted.
“The course was introduced earlier this year by PSL and @MultiChoiceGRP, and was specifically designed by GIBS to equip, and empower PSL players with the necessary knowledge and skills to find careers off the field after they retire.”
