Tlolane: I have not imagined life without football

Ever since he arrived at Maritzburg United, Tebogo Tlolane seems to be enjoying life under Eric Tinkler and admits that he hasn’t imagined or wondered what his life would look like without football.

Tlolane, on loan from Orlando Pirates, fitted into Tinkler’s Maritzburg side like a glove, putting in some impressive performances before the Premier Soccer League (PSL) was suspended indefinitely due to the coronavirus pandemic with the lockdown regulations in place.

“Obviously, I have not imagined life without football, but if there was a career, I would have taken Accounting,” said the skillful left-footed player.

“I really liked a lot to be an accountant. Second one would have been Logistics.” – Tlolane. Picture courtesy of Maritzburg United. 

Reflecting on the current Absa Premiership season, Tlolane says the most impressive matches for ‘Team of Choice’ are the back-to-back away games against Bidvest Wits and Kaizer Chiefs.

“Those two gave us a huge boost and much confidence. Asked in which match he feels that he delivered his best performance of the season, Tlolane said: “The one I scored in against Stellenbosch at home, and the away game against Kaizer Chiefs.”

The 25-year-old attacking midfielder keeps himself busy during lockdown by training – following ‘The Team of Choice’ programme, watching Netflix, TV and playing some PlayStation.

“We keep in touch almost every day [with teammates and coach], just to check up how each other are doing. We also have some good calls together.” – Tlolane. Picture courtesy of Maritzburg United. 
“I spend most of my time watching movies and series. I love Money Heist and the How to Get Away With Murder series. Movies are Bird Box, Fist Fight and Secret Obsession,” he added.

“I am most in contact with Keagan Buchanan, Thabiso Kutumela and Miguel Timm. We communicate via WhatsApp and Instagram,” added the former Chippa United and Jomo Cosmos player,” concluded Tlolane.
