Yesterday, Ntshangase made a visit to the Pongola Post Office, not as a football star, but as an applicant for the R350 social relief grant.

This move highlights the challenges he’s currently facing, a stark contrast to his previous life in the world of professional football.


In his prime, Ntshangase was known not only for his skills on the pitch but also for his ability to secure a comfortable life.

He used to rent three apartments in different locations: Polokwane, Johannesburg, and KwaZulu-Natal.

However, circumstances have clearly taken a toll on his financial stability, leading him to seek government assistance.


The news of Ntshangase’s situation serves as a poignant reminder of the unpredictable nature of life, especially for professional athletes whose careers can change in an instant.

It sheds light on the importance of financial planning and support systems for athletes transitioning out of their sports careers.

His journey serves as a reminder that athletes, like anyone else, are not immune to life’s ups and downs, and that a safety net and support system are crucial for all individuals in times of need.
