Comforting Words For Ex-Bucs Youngster: He Will Be Back & Be A Star

Encouraging words have been offered to Nhlakanipho ‘Nana’ Ntuli as he attempts to revive his career abroad. 

After spending more than two years without a club, the former South African U20 star has resurfaced in Poland where he signed with Sportis Lochowo.

The Umlazi-born player is a product of Orlando Pirates development, who previously also had a spell with the first team though he didn’t get game-time.

The talented player was previously also in the Netherlands at one stage in his career at FC Twente with their U21 team.

However, the 24-year-old has failed to live up to expectations as things haven’t worked out well in his career in the last few years.

“I know the guy and I know that he is here in Poland. I’ve read about his story and stuff and I think he is happy to be here, because he is playing football and is treated well, which is very important. I think all that he needs to do is to focus in his game to achieve whatever it is that he needs to achieve,” Poland-based midfielder Mkhanyiseli Siwahla weighs in.

“But I don’t like to hang around with other soccer players. I don’t want to be blamed for whatever isn’t going right in their careers. Otherwise, I am a very nice guy and I don’t have a problem with anyone. If someone needs motivation from me and to talk about life and things like that, I can help with that. But I decided to give him some time to adapt to the lifestyle in Poland

"He’s been in Europe before, but Poland is different to where he was. I think he is talented and all that he needs is to play football, focus and he will achieve. I wish him all the best to go back to the level he was at. I mean, to play in Holland and to come and play in Poland is like starting afresh, but it is good for him because he will get game-time. He will be back and be a star,” adds the ex-Ajax Cape Town star.
