Former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Joseph Molangoane has urged professional soccer players to be wise about their finances and think about life beyond football.
After more than three years at the club, Chiefs confirmed Molangoane’s departure on the 30th of June 30, without the player playing in the 2019/20 season.
In an interview with SA FM, Molangoane said, “I knew my contract was coming to an end [at Kaizer Chiefs]. I got a call the day before it ended. I would have liked to stay at the club until the season was completed. But I didn’t get that opportunity. But it’s football, its business. That’s how things work. No hard feelings.”
“My message and advice to young players is don’t get carried away by the spotlight. Look after your money, save well. I’ve never had financial education at the clubs I played for. We are from ekasi [township], we don’t have the background to use money wisely,” Molangoane added.
