Junior Khanye is an inspiration. The way he turned his life around. OPINION

Junior Khanye is a multi talented former Kaizer Chiefs and Bafana Bafana international attacking midfielder. He is considered by many to be one of best natural gifted players of our generation. He had quite amazing ball skills and in his prime he was unstoppable with his pace and silk dribbling skills he was every defender's worst nightmare. Junior had a sterling career as he first broke into the Kaizer Chiefs first team as a teenager , he dazzled the PSL terrorizing defenders and winning accolades.

Many people would agree with me i think Junior Khanye was a rare talent but he never reached his full potential. His career was surrounded by a lot of controversy and his alleged off the pitch entics. Those alleged off the picth entics and ill discipline saw his career cut short and did not living up to expectations. His career ended prematurely as stopped playing before the age of 30. People need to also understand that he was just a teenager from township and fame is a blessing and a curse if not handled it properly.

Junior was also alleged to he broke and struggling financially but he didn't let those challenges put him down. He worked extremely hard to turn his life around , using his footballing knowledge he become a soccer pundit. We saw him doing soccer analysis for Supersport as a guest , he was also partly involved with SABC sports giving indepth soccer analysis. He currently works as a soccer analyst for Diski TV , and people love his expert analysis.

However the reason I decided to share this story it's because it's inspiring and groundbreaking. When he was down and out people were saying all sorts of things but he didn't pay attention to any negativity. He solely focused on his goals which was to transform his life for better , which he did incredibly so and I respect him for that. The past doesn't determine the future so it's never too late you can start right where you are. There is no limitations as to how far you can go , the only limitations are the ones you set upon yourself. I know people see things differently and at the end of the day each and every person is entitled to his or her own opinion. This is your platform you can leave a comment below and share your views.
