Ex-Polokwane City defender Sibusiso Mbonani has admitted that it came as a shock to him when the club decided to release him.
Mbonani was let go by Rise and Shine alongside midfielder Wiseman Maluleke at the end of June.
This is after the 33-year-old spent 5 seasons at the club.
“Obvious my heart is painful (by the decision) but life goes on, I won’t dwell on why me? Why did it happen to me? If it was meant to happen to me so be it,” Mbonani told FARPost.
“I really find it funny but life goes on. I really don’t want to tell you lies on what really happened and also there are things that I don’t want to say because honestly it hurt me a lot what happened. Only they (Polokwane City) know what I did so that’s how it’s going to be,” added Mbonani.
The Mpumalanga-born player tells this publication that it has been difficult to find employment under the current COCID-19 pandemic.
“To be honest with you my brother, for now the coronavirus has made our lives stuck in all aspects. I don’t want to lie to you and say I am talk to team A or Team B but for now I am still training hard and hopefully when everything is back to normal we can talk.
“To the Polokwane City supporters I just want to say I love them and I will remember them and even Amajita (former teammates) I still love them a lot but life has to go on,” he said.
Mbonani made 116 appearances for Polokwane City since making his debut in August 2015.
He had joined the club from Witbank Spurs.
