Former Orlando Pirates player Tlou Segolela has offered some words of advice to his clubless homeboy Joseph Molangoane.
Molangoane’s four seasons stay at Kaizer Chiefs came to an end as he was released by the Absa Premiership log leaders last week.
Segolela, who went through a similar ordeal when he was let go by Orlando Pirates in 2014, says Molangoane should dust himself and Man Up.
“Football as they say does not have a formula, it’s full of surprises but it was really sad for him just from being injured to be released like that,” Segolela told FARPost.
“If you look at Sundowns they gave Thapelo Morena a contract who had a similar injury and was given 5 years. But that one differs with teams you know but for him life is like that, he just has to be strong, Man Up, no one will do it for him – you have to do it for yourself so those are my words (of advice) I can tell him,” he said.
Segolela believes the 32-year-old Molangoane still has what it takes to make it in topflight football.
“He has proven that he is a great player if he gets an opportunity. The only problem that he is facing at the moment is the opportunity so what you can ask is for other teams to give him a chance to showcase what he can do,” added the former Platinum Stars winger.
In a career that dates back from 2009, Molangoane has played for clubs such as Platinum Stars, AmaZulu, Orlando Pirates as well as Chippa United.
