Jambo Never Thought Of Giving Up

Kaizer Chiefs defender Jimmy Jambo never considered giving up football, despite the career threatening injury that he picked up earlier in the season.

Jambo tore his knee ligaments after a collision with Wits’ former Chiefs midfielder, Tinashe Nengomasha, back in October, and was consequently told that his season was over.

 

The defender started his rehabilitation in mid-January, however he still faces a lengthy lay-off before he can entertain the idea of pulling on the Amakhosi jersey again.

 

Nonetheless, Jambo hasn’t been down heartened, he told the Chiefs website, “The first step to recovery is to accept the situation you are in and the rest follows.

 

“I never pointed fingers when I got injured and I had to accept the situation. The idea of giving up never crossed my mind. I have always been focused on coming back and I will bounce back.

 

“I received a lot of encouragement from Morgan (Gould) who suffered more or less the same injury at some stage in his career. He was very supportive and I am grateful to him. The Club has also been very supportive, the other day I spoke to the Executive Chairman (Kaizer Motaung) and I have received calls from the Football Manager (Bobby Motaung) and Marketing Director (Jessica Motaung) wishing me all the best.

 

“My teammates have also been supportive; I remember Tefu Mashamaite coming to my house with lots of sweets. Then there was Kingston Nkhatha, he was with me each and every step of the way and they even wanted to offer him a bed at the hospital. My wife has been very supportive and I am not sure if I would have been able to cope without him and Kingston."
