Premier League

Innocent Mdledle | Before & after retirement from football

The PSL has been dominated by some footballers who were tipped to reach dizzy heights and unfortunately for some they did not even have a chance of lifting a single league title.

These professionals are often places on pedistals and considered to be elite only to flat out and not warrant the attention.

In the PSL era DStv Premiership side Orlando Pirates have always had the services of some of the best left back defenders at their disposal. We cannot begin to name a few without the mentioning of Lucas Thwala, Patrick Phungwayo and as well as Innocent Mdledle. In case of the latter he was tipped to reach dizzy heights when he made a switch move from Orlando Pirates to Mamelodi Sundowns but unfortunately he never lived up to the expectations.

Joining the Brazilians was a wise move for him financial but at the same time it was career suicidal. In his three year spell at Chloorkop Mdledle went to make 39 appearances and mostly coming on as a substitute, playing second fiddle to veterans at the club. Post his exit at Chloorkop in 2012 he went to join Supersport United and Mpumalanga Black Aces before he completely disappeared off the radar.

In the latter stages of his career, the former Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns went to headline in many publications after he was arrested for drunk and driving offences and also allegedly assaulting a uniformed law enforcement officer. However, luckily for him the matter was thrown out of court. Post his retirement Mdledle has kept a low profile barely making headlines.

Through social media investigations we were able to find some of his recent pictures and from the looks of things he is now living a normal lifestyle as he now hangs out with ordinary citizens of the country. According to rumours Innocent Mdledle is currently based in Mpumalanga where he currently heads a local football academy.
