While 30-year-old George Lebese is still clubless, there are those who sympathise with him.
Ex Orlando Pirates forward Phumudzo Manenzhe spoke to FARPost.co.za and offered his word of advice on what approach Lebese should take next.
“It’s about accepting certain mistakes that he has made as an individual and therefore I need to start from the bottom and build myself up, and the other advice is if only he can do me this favour and blame himself before anybody else – that’s where the change starts,” says Manenzhe.
“If you look at yourself first and do a self introspectio, when you come out you’ll come out a different person.
“George my younger brother if it means go to GladAfrica (Championship), go to GladAfrica,” Manenzhe continues.
“If you are not finding any opportunities or offers in the PSL,start from the bottom and you’ll come up.
“Don’t worry about what journalists are going to say, it’s about you trying to resurrect, it’s about you trying to build from scratch. Start from the bottom and you’ll rise again.”
AmaZulu was said to be one of the clubs that the former Amakhosi star was linked to, but it seems as if all talks have gone quiet again and he finds himself training solo whilst he waits for an offer.
Lebese, who signed for Mamelodi Sundowns in the July transfer window in 2017, had quite a disappointing spell at Choorklop playing just 10 games and failing to convince coach Pitso Mosimane to give him more game time.
He then went out on loan to their Tshwane rivals Supersport United where he played 7 games but failed to secure a permanent deal there as well with Kaitano Tembo sending the star back to Downs.
