Former Mamelodi Sundowns center back, Matthew Booth, and chemical engineering graduate student Bongani Mthombeni-Moller have taken their relationship to a new level by partnering to establish a training academy.
Matthew Booth, renowned as South African football’s tallest former Mamelodi Sundowns center back, and Bongani Mthombeni-Moller, who possesses significant experience in business and infrastructure, announced their joint venture on Instagram.
Together, they have co-founded and assumed the roles of directors for Booth Education and Sports Africa (Booth Africa).
This organization is committed to enhancing the lives of young South Africans through football.
Matthew Booth, now 46 years old, enjoyed a successful career as a center back and goal scorer at the club level with Mamelodi Sundowns.
However, his international career with the South African national team did not achieve the same level of success.
Despite earning 37 caps for the national team, Booth, a Cape Town native, only managed to score one goal during his international tenure.
His professional profile can also be found on the German transfermarkt website.
Matthew Booth and Bongani Mthombeni-Moller’s joint initiative holds the promise of positively impacting the lives of young South Africans through football.
