Gaxa credits Pitso, Binkin for degree

Ex-Kaizer Chiefs defender Siboniso Gaxa says he has not yet made a decision on whether or not to retire from football after graduating at Wits University on Thursday.

The former Mamelodi Sundowns right-back made himself proud after graduating with a Political Science and Social Studies degree.

‘Pa’ is currently without a team after leaving Ajax Cape Town last season.

However, despite being unemployed, Gaxa managed to focus on his studies and having attained his first tertiary qualification, is now dedicated to his LLB studies as he takes his education further.

“I have not yet made a decision [on retirement]. Age is not on my side and [the course] I am involved in now is consuming a lot of time. I have not yet finalised my retirement but I am getting closer,” Gaxa told KickOff.com.

Gaxa, who has also invested in property, has credited a number of people who inspired him to prepare for life after football.

“Some people don’t understand the historical background. Some of us come from poor families and know nothing about investment. Some have been taught but again I don’t think I have done enough to explain about investment,” the former SuperSport United man continued.

“I was fortunate to come across people like Pitso Mosimane and Glyn Binkin, who assisted me to choose certain things. Their influence played a massive role. Listening to those people was a key element.

“It’s always difficult to choose certain things. You start playing professional football and earning a big salary at the age of 22 and it’s difficult to start to think that your football career will one day come to an end.”
