SA Football is a Scam: Ex-Supersport Star

Ex-Chiefs youth player Sbusiso's "sense of Knowledge" Mahlangu says that SA soccer is a scam today

In life, you learn through people's mistakes, school, and the worst one though your own mistake

At times you can't recover financially after making a big mistake. 

Sbu says investing in property is a good thing but it must be done in the right way in the right environment.

Money will disappear at some point in your soccer career if you don't have plan B. You are in big trouble.

if you earn R500 000 you must leave a lifestyle of R50 000 salary, because you won't earn R500 000 forever.

Sundowns players don't want to leave because they want to maintain their status, if they leave. They will earn less money at another PSL club.

Sbu is adamant that only 3 big clubs are paying well. He is not sure about Royal am but he suspects that they are also paying well.

Players today often spend R20 000 or R40 000 on Champagne unlike before they used to spend much less for pleasure. R500 000 can quickly disappear today.

The are a lot of problems that need to be solved in SA football, even if we were to bring Pep Guardiola and Klopp they won't fix our problem.

-PSL Teams Should Make Things Easier for the Poor

He questions why can't team like Chiefs and Supersport have satellite teams in different townships in the country.

Chiefs used to bring mini buses to Daveyton to fetch players.

However now players have to come to naturena for trials. Football is now a sport for the privilege.

if you come from a poor background it becomes a big stumbling block to succeeding.

He wants teams to invest in ex-players.

Sbu once presented 3 players to Super sports United. However, the coach did not have the power to sign them. He needed permission from management to sign these players.

Sbu says nowadays agents are big friends with management. The agents will often push their players to join a team

If they don't gain financially from another player. They will discourage management from signing that particular player and encourage management to sign their own players.

Sbu is adamant that SA football is a scam today. It is about who is privileged it is no longer about talent.
