They know what I can do on the field, says Bilankulu


After spending six months with Bizana Pondo Chiefs, who got relegated to the ABC Motsepe League, Musa Bilankulu is looking for a new home.

The 36-year-old utility player knows his worth and believes he has a lot to offer in the PSL, as he continues his search for a club.

The former Golden Arrows defender revealed to FARPost that he prefers a team in the PSL because that’s where his quality and capabilities will be tested.

“I believe everyone has got their opinion on senior players, so I think they know what I can do on the field,” he said.

“Currently I’ll just say maybe someone will come, but I don’t want to put any pressure to the coaches I’ve worked with before.

“Because if they know what they’re looking for and they know that I’m available, surely they can give me a call to come and help them or the team, so let’s wait and see what comes up.

“I don’t want to say I’ve got a style of play but as I’ve said if anyone is looking for me, they know what I can do, what can I offer to the team, so I’m open to any team.

“I don’t want to say in KZN or wherever, I’m open to the 16 teams in the PSL, for as long they will give me respect and I’m sure that I’ll give them the necessary experience they need and my services are always on time.”

The former Bloemfontein Celtic player has emphasized the issue of respect in the GladAfrica Championship, where he believes even the officials are targeting certain players.

“I’ve been in the PSL for 15 years, I played in the NFD when it was Mvela League, when I was on loan from Golden Arrows.

“When I talk about respect, even referees – the officiating, they don’t respect players there or maybe they target ex-PSL players, when they play in the NFD.

“How they officiate the games, respect goes a long way I’m not specifically saying in the team that I was playing in before.

“Respect, I’m talking about everything in the league, so in the PSL it’s ok it’s better they know how to treat players whether contractual issues or anything.

“That’s why I’m saying that’s how I need to do my send-off… I want to say my good-byes very well in the game,” concluded Bilankulu.
