Advice To Star As Off The Field Issues Derail Career

A word of advice has been offered to a former South African youth international, whose promising career hangs in the balance, due to off the field issues that seem to derail his progress. 

As he waits to see where he will be getting his next contract from after his deal with AmaZulu was terminated before the end of the 2018/19 season, Ayabulela Konqobe has been advised by Mkhanyiseli Siwahla on how to deal with his current situation.

In confirming Konqobe’s release from the club last month, AmaZulu's media officer Brilliant Mkhathini told the Siya crew, “It’s something that happened this morning (Monday). We can't reveal the details, and all I can confirm is that we have agreed to go separate ways. We don't want to dwell much on it. We don't want to knock future relations for him. We don't want that to take the centre of attention. We need a focused team.”

According to some reports in local media, the former South African U20 captain was released from the KwaZulu-Natal due to his off the field antics.

Konqobe had been on his second spell with Usuthu, having joined the club on a six-month deal in the January.

The Gugulethu-born player previously had a trial with Kaizer Chiefs. 

“I don’t like to advise people who play football because I am not perfect and no one is perfect. But I cannot run away from saying something about what’s happening in football, because I am in football. The guy needs to sit down and think back to when he was eager to become a professional footballer. He has to start afresh,” advised Siwahla.

“If he has to apologise somewhere, he should apologise even if he gets rejected. Once he gets a job (club) again, he will have to do what he has to do and that’s to play football. I have heard everyone saying that he is very talented, so it would be best for him to forget about the fame and everything, and start all over again. He should reduce the number of friends he has and focus on his football. It’s very important to know where you lost it,” added the Nyanga-born midfielder.
