FARPost caught up with Southampton academy graduate Siphesihle Mdlalose as he opened up about his exit from ‘The Saints’ junior ranks last season.

Mdlalose was with Southampton until the U23 level and the attacker opened up about his time there saying: “Southampton was a great for place for me to learn and develop in many aspects of my game.

“The set up at Southampton is really good as not only they help you become a better player, but also help in life outside of football. They teach you how to become a better footballer and how to deal with the pressures of being a footballer outside the football world,” added Mdlalose.

They also help educate you to become more than just a footballer in life generally I mean I’d been there for almost all my life you know,” – Mdlalose.

“Nothing in particular went wrong there I just never got the opportunity to play and I was compounded with injuries in my time there so basically those cost me the opportunity to play in my time there. You know things like this happened in football,” he continued.

Asked about his future beyond the current pandemic, Mdlalose continued to talk about offers he currently has.

“There are a few opportunities available and I’m working with my team to ensure we take one of those and pick the right place for me to continue developing and get better.

“So, by the end of the upcoming window I will have a new home all I want to do is play football and grow as a player,” concluded Mdlalose.
