The Real Reason George Lebese Left Colorado Spring Switchbacks

Leaving the American side was one of the toughest decisions George Lebese ever made in his career. It was never really planned as the South African footballer was forced to discontinue his services to Spring Switchback after months of waiting for something better.

He announced that in March 2021, he had ended his ties with the club by mutual consent due to a ban imposed on travelers from South Africa by the American government following the discovery of a new coronavirus variant.

The former Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder decided to terminate his contract with the Switchbacks after he was stranded in Gauteng while the USL Championship side was already undergoing pre-season training for the upcoming season. Lebese ended his contract with the side just four months after he extended his deal with them by another year.

As a result of their very busy schedules, not many footballers have time to savor the fun that comes with social media trends, partake in tasking challenges, join the debate about current societal issues, or even have fun with their loved ones but Lebese’s case is different.
