SLTV - Carwash: Mabizela’s Downfall!
OJ Mabizela, once touted as one of South Africa’s top talents didn’t realise potential despite playing at the highest level in the English Premier League.
South Africa’s super-agent, Mike Makaab, told SL Radio presenter, Sloo Phaho that the former Orlando Pirates and Tottenham Hotspur defender was the most talented player he’d ever worked with.
In the latest episode of the Carwash, Teko Modise mentions how retired players must tell their stories to young professionals, educating them about the pitfalls to avoid within the game.
While Soccer Laduma’s Clint Roper also mentioned the need for footballers to wake up in order to make better career decisions inside and outside the game.
During the podcast, Teko said…
- "He wasn’t much of a talker…"
- "I liked that about him…"
- "It was always amazing seeing how mature he was at a young age…"
- "The fresher it is the better it is…"
- "I didn’t know what fame would bring…"
While Roper said…
- "Maybe he’s the most talented one he’s managed…"
- "There are so many stories about Mabizela and what went wrong…"
- "He was definitely good enough to be there…"
- "He could have played on any stage…"
