Veteran midfielder Jabulani Maluleke has explained his unexpected move to GladAfrica Championship side Sekhukhune United.
Maluleke was at Polokwane City for the past seven years but was surprisingly let go by the club following their relegation to the second-tier league at the end of the 2019/20 season.
The 38-year-old was recently unveiled by the ambitious side Sekhukhune after signing a season-long deal.
“Everything happened quickly after I got a call from the team looking for my services so I had to accept and come here,” Maluleke told FARPost.
Maluleke also reflected on his time at Rise and Shine where he spent most of his time as the captain.
“Everything was okay at my previous team and I am grateful for everything they have done for me throughout my stay there. Now I am moving forward to this great team that I have joined, ” he said.
“Our preparation has gone well and the organisation has been good so far. We have everything that we need, the team is looking good.
“We are gelling so quick so we are just looking forward to next week to start the season and hopefully we can achieve our goal of getting promoted to the PSL,” added the experienced midfieder.
On how many years he is left with in his playing career, this is what Maluleke had to say: “I am taking it one season at a time, it will depend with my legs. As long as they can still carry me then I will continue to play,” explained Maluleke.
