Chabalala, who spent between 2004 and 2008 with Bucs, is now based home in Malamulele in Limpopo and involved with a club in Mzansi’s third tier.

“Our team is called Malamulele Real Fighters and is playing in Venda. We bought the team and I’m one of the directors. I am responsible for the day-to-day running of the team,” said Chabalala.

The former star says his club will be hosting a football tournament with a view to unearthing future stars.

“We are hosting a football tournament in Malamulele from 21-24 December. The purpose of the tournament is to scout for our team in the ABC Motsepe League. Our team is called Malamulele Real Fighters. We would like to unearth talented players from our area who would be groomed to play for our team. It’s their area so they should benefit from the team that comes from here.

“From this area, we no longer have players in the PSL or NFD and we want to change that. Since from my days in the PSL and with the likes of Collins (Chabalala), Ishmael (Maluleke) and Morris Chauke, we don’t have any players from our area playing in Mzansi’s top-flight. We want to change that so that there could be more players from this area playing in the PSL one day. The tournament will be at the Malamulele Stadium. So far we have nine teams and we are looking at having 10 teams participating,” said Chabalala.
