Cape Town - Former Bafana Bafana star Lerato Chabangu revealed he is thankful for a second chance at football saying 'it's a good feeling to come back and play football' after signing a deal with ABC Motsepe outfit Baberwa.
Chabangu added he is grateful for being given another chance by the Midrand-based side - after signing a six-month deal - and that he was looking forward to repaying their faith showed in him.
"I'm feeling great," he told SowetanLive. "Because it's been long without me playing, and playing is something that is in me since I was born."
"It's a good feeling to come back and play football. I'm very much committed because they gave me the chance that no one else was prepared to give me. So I have to show my gratefulness.
"The environment is very good and they have a lot of quality players. We've got a lot to offer this time."
The 33-year-old recently admitted he had fallen on hard times but was always hopeful of another chance in the game.
Baberwa owner Joe Seanego had confirmed the former Moroka Swallows star was training with the team in the hopes of throwing his football career a lifeline.
"We are trying to revive the soccer career of Lerato Chabangu and give him hope," Seanego said.
Chabangu made his name with Mamelodi Sundowns earlier in his career before a successful spell with The Birds from 2011 until 2015.
He also spent time with the University of Pretoria, SuperSport United and Chippa United, where he last featured in South Africa's top flight in 2015/16.
