Dladla was born in Soweto and lived with his grandmother. His first pair of boots were the Puma Jomo Sono King and they were given to him by a family friend in 1986.

A lot of players start playing for a club to persuade their dreams as a professional footballer. However, when time goes on they start to realise how much they need in order to make a living. It gets somehow weird how they come to change their ego because of money. Some of the players begins to turn their backs on their managers when they want salary increment.

Just like Josta Dladla, he played for Sundowns from 2004 to 2009 until he joined Kaizer Chiefs. He was not getting what he wanted as his salary at Mamelodi Sundowns and Kaizer Chiefs had offered him a fortune. He played 99 games and scored 13 goals with Mamelodi Sundowns.

From 2009, he joined Kaizer Chiefs until 2015 and he appeared 102 with 9 goals.

As a player, you need to know that football career doesn't last forever as we grow to retire at 30/35 but not more than 40. A lot of players fails to invest and end up being bankrupt after they retired.

Josta Dladla also played in Europe in Denmark side at Aarhus.
