Ralph "Banolila" Matema Retires At 40


40-year-old Ralph “Banolila” Matema has retired after 19 years of playing professional football.

Matema, who rose to stardom while playing for Highlanders, started his career at the now defunct Kambuzuma United.

He was only 17 when he made his debut for Kambuzuma United.

He later played for Highlanders, Triangle United, Orlando Pirates and Witbank Spurs in South Africa and Yadah Stars.

Matema, who is moving to the United States of America, said he was “made” by Bosso. He said:

I have enough respect for the teams that gave me the opportunity to showcase my talent and I learned a lot at every club I played for.

However, my most unforgettable moments were at Highlanders. The club made me the person that I am today, the fans made me enjoy my stay and I wish them nothing but success, for what they did for me.
