From a top footballer to a Security officer | Meet the ex-PSL who lost it all

Misplaced hype isn't hard to stumble across more especially in the football world in South Africa. We have had some of the best prodigies who had their potential suitors in anticipation of what was to come to simple fizzle out like water damaged fireworks.

Ill-considered transfers have also outdone some of the best prospects. Serious injuries and psychological issues for longer periods of time can cause a player's position at the club to dwindle into a spectator.

Once upon a time a young prospect from KZN by the name of Ndumiso Vezi took the PSL by storm. Straight from the development side of Ajax Cape Town to the senior team, Vezi went to fit like a hand in a glove. During that time there was a huge hype around him and unfortunately he never went to reach the set standards.

One tragic day Ndumiso Vezi was involved in a tragic motor vehicle accident which left him with a huge medical bill. His then team Ajax Cape Town would then cover his medical costs after having reached an agreement with him. After having nursed his injuries for some time, he then had to do what he loves, play football.

During one training session the KZN born player had a heated argument with the assistant coach and was asked to leave the session. After the incident he lost his salary, club lodging and was also suppose to reimburse the money owed to Ajax Cape Town. Having lost his club lodging Vezi would then decide to return back to his hometown in KZN.

After a while his situation turned for the worse after reports emerged that Ajax Cape Town refused to give him his clearance. Therefore there was no way Mr Vezi could further his professional career. Out of curiosity we have since decided to investigate as to what does he do for a living. After having disappeared from football for several years, the former Ajax Cape Town midfielder now works as a security officer in Durban.
