As they prepare for their match against Kaizer Chiefs this coming weekend, Polokwane City’s Jabulani Maluleke is reminded of how the team will miss Sammy Seabi, who left the Limpopo outfit to join Mamelodi Sundowns during the transfer window.
Seabi, who is highly-rated by Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane, has started two Absa Premiership matches and one in the MTN8 so far this season, and his progress has been noticeable in the midfield of the Brazilians.
“I think his (Seabi’s) move is a big loss for us. But we have a big squad with the players that can come in and replace him. I spoke to him before he left and I wished him luck. I advised him to stay focused and remain humble. I am happy that he has been playing and I just hope that he can remain injury-free to enjoy his progress,” Maluleke told the Siya crew.
Maluleke, who guided the 24-year-old central midfielder when he played alongside him at Rise and Shine as the team went on to finish the 2018/19 season in fifth place on the log, says the Limpopo-born player could go on to become one of the top midfielders in Mzansi.
“The boy is one of the best up-and-coming midfielders that we have in the country. There’s still a lot for him to offer to the game and South African football. He just has to work hard at all times. I have the belief that in the next two or three years he is going to make it (as a top midfielder in Mzansi),” added Maluleke.
