Then, Phiri was recruited by another local team, Balfour Football Club and Shootings Stars, before Wits football academy signed him at age 14.

After impressing at Wits, Phiri was scouted by Danish club Brøndby and he joined their academy aged 18. Since then, the midfielder has impressed in Europe to become one of the best soccer players in South Africa.

Lebogang Phiri In South Africa

Although he has spent his senior club career abroad, Phiri has returned to represent Bafana Bafana regularly. The 27-year-old made his debut for the national team in an international friendly against Switzerland in 2015, when he came off the bench for a 20-minute cameo.

Lebogang Phiri International Career

Since joining Brøndby in his teenage years, Phiri has gone on to have an impressive international career so far. Below is an overview of his contributions to his clubs across Europe.


Phiri was recruited by Brøndby in 2013. Initially, he joined on an 18-month loan deal and played in the youth team. However, he soon earned his place in the senior team and excelled.

After ending the season strongly with Brøndby in the Danish league, Phiri earned his place as a hero at the club on the last day of the 2012/13 season. In the final game of the campaign, the midfielder’s last-minute goal against AC Horsens saved the club from relegation.

A strong start for Phiri earned him a four-year contract at Brøndby. The midfielder went on to make 145 appearances for the club across a four-year spell and he scored five goals.


After struggling to agree on a deal with Brøndby in 2017, Phiri eventually joined the French side Guingamp. Quickly, the South African international established himself as a regular in the Guingamp side, featuring in most Ligue 1 matches.

Even though Guingamp was relegated to Ligue 2 in the 2018/19 season, Phiri stuck with his side for the 2019/20 season. However, it would be his last in France as he joined Caykur Rizespor in 2021.

Caykur Rizespor

In July 2021, Phiri joined Caykur Rizespor on a three-year deal. However, the midfielder has struggled with injuries since moving to Turkey and has been in and out of the squad.
