Is this the greatest betrayal in South African football history?
After three seasons with Stellenbosch FC, Leletu Skelem has left the Mother City outfit to join Maritzburg United, where he is hoping to take his career to the next level under the club’s head coach, Ernst Middendorp.
The winger is, however, not too pleased that he was part of the swap deal with Judas Moseamedi, who made the switch to Stellies.
The 23-year-old winger once had family problems that affected his progress last season. Could this be the reason he was shipped out?
Not long ago he was linked with a move to Kaizer Chiefs because of his brilliance on the pitch but nothing concrete bore any fruit.
"It is not easy, but it is the way it is and it’s one of those things that we as footballers have to always expect. It is another way of learning more about football and to develop as a footballer," he said.
He added that leaving Stellenbosch was never easy giving the history he has with the club.
"But it was not easy for me to leave Kayamandi in Stellenbosch because it is the first time that I had to leave my comfort zone. I was so confused and nervous about the move, but it is what it is," he said.
