Thembi Kgatlana is a South African women's soccer star and she has made history for herself. She was with her family in the mother city and is also waiting for her leg to heal from the injury she suffered. She is an international soccer star who is still looking to make history with the number on her jersey, and it does not have to come from the South African women's team, it also in Europe.
She is representing the country in Europe and her success is causing the nation to be proud of her. She is spending time with family and with the injury she is having, it is a set back. Many players have gone through an injury and made a come back stronger. It has given her an opportunity to make everyone in the family happy, because with the calendar of football, she don't get much time for family experiences.
It was reported to be having a huge conflict that led to unfairness to the women's team by SAFA not paying them the amount they had promised them. It is very disappointing to be hearing such treatment from the South African football organization. Julius Malema when he was on the Podcast and Chill with MacG, he said the main aim of an organization is not to make a profit, but to help its people.
If it was taken with fairness, they should have went through unfairness treatment and many people in the media space were not happy when they learnt what was happening from the SAFA. JJ Tabane was one of them, who did not sugarcoat anything and was trying to get the matter solved properly. SAFA should honour its promises all the time. Maybe the problem is the management.
It is very good for Thembi to make a good moment for her family while she still has a chance to do it. She should not be one of those South African players to talk about the mistreatment they had in football and the worst part of it was not being paid the salary she deserves. Hopefully, she is well paid and she is an international player who is playing in Europe for a big team.
