Former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder, Thabiso Malatsi, has signed with GWP Friends in the ABC Motsepe League.
The Daveyton-born player, who made a name for himself in professional football as a dribbling star for Chiefs, says he is giving back to the young players at the KZN outfit by advising them on how to avoid some of the mistakes he made during his prime.
Malatsi was disrupted by numerous off-the-field incidents that resulted in him not making enough progress in his career. The 34-year-old has confirmed to the Siya crew that he has penned a contract with Friends.
“I have signed with a team called Friends in the ABC Motsepe League in Durban. They have asked me to assist them. They are a small team that is ambitious. They want to see themselves at the top one day. I give guidance to the young players in the team. I advise them on the things they should and shouldn’t do. I thought it would make sense to the youngsters if I’m the one telling them about these things, as I had been there and saw them happening to me. I help the club in different ways, including scouting for talented players for them and other things,” said Malatsi.
Another former Chiefs midfielder from Daveyton, Junior Khanye, is trying out at Palmeros FC in the ABC Motsepe League, as reported by the Siya crew.
