Kaizer Chiefs star Sifiso Hlanti is seemingly a man of many passions and we can say, perhaps confidently, that one of them is the automotive industry. Here's why.

The story

Upon a glance at the left-back's social media, we've discovered that the player holds some close ties to the auto mechanics field. In several of his pictures, the fullback is spotted hanging around a car repair and panel-beating site. 

It is either the player has close ties with one of the mechanics or he could potentially have a stake in the business judging by his cryptic captions.

Surely cars are his thing, right?

It is undeniable that the player has had a pretty range of cars during his playing career. During his time at Bidvest Wits, he was known to have an old black Mercedes Benz C200 hatchback. Since then he has been seen with several other rides, including a modern Merc as well as the Jeep Wrangler.

At the mechanic where he is regularly seen, it appears that the place also specialises in fixing taxis as various minibuses have been seen in the background of his images.

If in fact, it is the case that he has a stake in the car repairs business, we imagine that the player is quite popular in his neighbourhood as this is often the case with mechanics in the township.

Your thoughts, please?

After a long injury lay-off, what are Hlanti's chances of retaining his left-back spot under new coach Arthur Zwane?
