What SSU Can Teach The Big Clubs About Loyalty

Loyalty is an interesting concept to define in football. Some will say that it is the most valuable currency with which a footballer can approach the game, some will say that it counts little. Usually where loyalty is said to become a factor is after retirement, where a player will need a new job, after being a footballer. Which South African clubs are seen to best take care of their players?

There has been a lot of talk of loyalty recently. This was all sparked by the departure of Reneilwe Letsholonyane from Kaizer Chiefs. Many supporters warned “Yeye” that if he stayed at Chiefs he would be rewarded with a life-after-football position, much like Doctor Khumalo was.

Other supporters said that this is merely not true, and as evidence they cite the Thabo Mooki saga, where the player was not afforded a tribute game after his long services to the Black and Gold. The most recent discussion around loyalty has been about Ramahlwe Mphahlele leaving Sundowns.

Now the news has emerged that SuperSport United veteran Thabo September will be rewarded with a junior coaching job following his many years of service for the boys from Pretoria. The supporters are delighted at this news and have taken time to compliment SSU.

“Good news. I hope all teams can do that to their legends.” – luba the mighty Bucs fan.

“That’s good news. Especially after seving your team for a decade, you deserve the reward Thabo.” – mbixane

“That’s SSU for you… Looking out for their loyal players, unlike “one big team”.” – Allen.Akos.matjhila.khasto 43.

“Good news. A lesson to players like Rama that loyalty pays.” – setlaboswana.

Which team do you think looks after its legends the most? Should legends be rewarded with jobs after football?
