Cape Town - Former Mamelodi Sundowns and Bafana Bafana defender Luvhengo Mungomeni has announced his retirement from football having not played since 2015/16.

The 33-year-old has decided to retire from the game after dropping out of the professional ranks after leaving Moroka Swallows that year.

He was a part of the Premiership squad that was relegated to the National First Division the campaign before, but only made one appearance in 15/16 in the second tier.

He told Kickoff: "Papi Mungomeni has officially retired and challenged himself on facing the reality out of soccer fame to live a life that will make him a better person in business.

"I never wanted to retire at an old age. I have left football peacefully with good discipline. I have never attended any hearing in my 12 years of playing professional football.
