Former Mamelodi Sundowns and Moroka Swallows midfielder Lerato Chabangu has reportedly gone off the rails.

Chabangu was released by Chippa United last year and has been without a club since.

“He is now back home in Tembisa. His wife left him and his house was repossessed and he is basically down and out. Just recently he got into a fight with some guy in a local tavern,” said a source.

Chabangu has previously admitted to having a drinking problem but claimed to be over it after going to rehab. His career was resuscitated by Gordon Igesund at Swallows, and he even made the national team again.
