Growing up in Embalenhle, Mpumalanga, Monare was spotted playing for a local academy before joining AmaTuks FC where he would get his first professional break against Witbank Spurs FC. The central midfielder would then move on to Bidvest Wits for four seasons, a run which saw him lift both a league and Nedbank Cup title. In 2020, Thabang signed with Orlando Pirates.
Being a fan of Roger Feutmba, Monare emulates the winning mentality of the Cameroonian midfielder and aims to achieve success with the Buccaneers.
A fighter with a never-give-up approach to every game on the pitch, off the field “Desh” enjoys going out with his friend and family and has an expressed interest in fashion.
