Cape Town - Former Moroka Swallows captain Lefa Tsutsulupa announced his retirement and takes up a CEO role at a player management company, Bright Talent.

According to KickOff, the midfielder decided to hang up his boots after his contract at Swallows expired at the end of June.

“It is time for change and I am now starting a new football-related venture as the CEO of Bright Talent player management,” Tsutsulupa said.

“My career went through different phases and highlights included turning professional with Celtic which I consider as an achievement on its own.”

“Then I went on to captain Swallows for periods stretching over five years. I won trophies [2009 Nedbank Cup and 2012 MTN8] and represented the country [seven Bafana Bafana caps] and those are achievements that give me joy.”

The 35-year-old represented the Dube Birds in over 180 appearances and netted eight goals for the Sowetan side.
