Being a football player is one of the hardest jobs one could ever have as it does not only require one to be talented, but also hardworking, disciplined, and loyal to his talent and the clubs he will be playing for.
Something Orlando Pirates Football Club striker, Zakhele Lepasa understands well, the former Tim Sukazi Galaxy Football Club player spent over a year on the sidelines after suffering devastating injuries and personal loss after he lost his girlfriend to cancer.
It required determination, hard work, mental and physical fitness, and perseverance for the South African youth international to return to action, and do what he loves and put bread on his table.
They were times when many felt that the career of the 24-year-old was over as he struggled with the personal loss and his injuries, but due to the love and support he had from his family, fans, followers, and Pirates management he was able to return to action.
One of his closest friends happens to be his teammate at Pirates is former Jomo Cosmos Football Club and Chippa United middlefielder, Linda Mntambo, who is said to be the one who was there for Lepasa during his tough times.
The two are known to be close as thieves and a few days ago Lepasa revealed that Mntambo has his Instagram logging in details, and has been using it to share things on Lepasa stories and tags himself.
Earlier today Lepasa took to his Instagram story @zakhelelepasa to share the same message, he said that Linda posts his Tik Tok videos on his Instagram account, and after tags himself. He further went on to say it must be crack, which simply means that the Pirates are using drugs, and he was high when doing this.
Their friendship shows that football can give you more than you seek in life, as it has handed them a brother for life and I wish they can grow their friendship further.
