Having been in the spotlight while playing professional football in the PSL and represented Bafana Bafana, GWP Friends FC midfielder Thanduyise Khuboni believes he has a huge role to play in helping his teammates shape their careers.
The former Golden Arrows midfield anchor told FARPost that he wants to guide youngsters in his team on how to stay focused in the game.
“I can offer a lot with these youngsters in terms of discipline, most of the time you can go a long way with discipline. There are players I think you know them, they are playing in the PSL some of them didn’t go far because of (lack of) discipline though they are very talented.
“Because they lack discipline they didn’t make the best of their careers, so I think me coming here to help the guys with my experience I’ll show them the discipline inside and outside the field,” said Khuboni.
The 34-year-old player is adamant it will be more relevant for his teammates to learn from him because he has walked the journey, than other coaches who have not played the game.
“Sometimes it’s easy as a youngsters to be pushed by a player who has been to the top flight, at least they know what I’m talking about. So it’s easier for youngsters to relate to players than coaches, I also believe that I have a lot to offer to the youngsters, ” continued Khuboni.
Bhuda as he is affectionately known in the team is happy to see the fruits of his contribution and helping the team get results.
“There is a lot that they are learning from me and I believe they are responding well because to be honest as the team youngsters and experienced players are doing well and we gel as a team,” concluded Khuboni.
