Bongani Twala, who used to play for Sundowns, had a strange time in the top flight of football. He is 33 years old, but he disappeared from the top level of football around 2013. Still young, he was.
He was very skilled, but it was bad luck that he was an old player.
He didn't deserve to get a club. He also played for the under-20 team of junior international.
He was mostly given the runaround. The coach left the club when he asked to go to Platinum Stars. Calvin Johnson, who used to work for Al Ahly, promised him a job, but he went to a new team, Supersport.
Twala thinks that he wasn't always a bad boy.
He did what he was told. But something happened that upset him a lot and made him start drinking a lot.
When Hristo Stoichkov was still coaching Sundowns, he trained hard.
He is sure that he worked harder than anyone else on the team. He worked hard at his job. He thinks he was the most fit person on the team. No one on the team ran faster than he did.
He was in front of the coach.
He told himself, "Maybe I'll play more often." When the season starts for real. But it wasn't meant to happen. He was very angry because he was the one who had to do the most.
He lost hope because he was running faster than everyone else at training.
At some point, Twala had to be patient because he was playing against big names.
What bothered him the most was that some of Sundowns' older players would show up to training drunk.
Some of these players used to play often, even though they used to smell like alcohol when they came to training.
Not everyone was as fit as he was. On game day, though, they were in the 18-person squad.
He started drinking because he was upset that he wasn't getting to play often at Sundowns.
He knows that Friday is a good day to drink, so he often does. Even though he was better than those who play often, he wasn't going to play this weekend.
