Watch| Majoro and Maluleka graduates

Being a professional footballer is one of the hardest things soccer players have to deal with, the amount of work you need to put in to stay relevant along with the temptations this world comes with has been the demise of many players in the past. The former teammates at Kaizer Chiefs Football Club Lehlohonolo Majoro(35) and George Maluleka(32) are well into their final few seasons as professional players, after spending well over 10 seasons in the top flight of South African football.

Their journeys in football are almost the same as they have both played for a certain club twice, Majoro Amazulu Football Club while Maluleka Supersport United. They are both Bafana Bafana internationals, having more than 10 caps for the national team each.

Their respective careers are almost the same as they are currently struggling for game time at their respective clubs, Amazulu and Mamelodi Sundowns Football Club respectively. While Majoro has had five starts this season, Maluleka has had only one substitute appearance.

Their similarities don't end in the field of play as outside it they also have things that are the same, their daughters Hayleigh Majoro and Zoë-Lee Tinyiko Maluleka are six-year-olds who will be doing Grade one next year.

The two Premier Soccer League(PSL) veterans shared the video clips of their daughters taking the first step towards acquiring education, they shared them on their Instagram stories @lehlohonomajoro and @maluleka12.

I think they just showed many South African dads that you can have a career and also be there for your family, as your career will not always be there but your family will.

We would to take this time and congratulate Zoë-Lee Tinyiko Maluleka and Hayleigh Majoro on graduating from the pre-school level and wish them success going forward.
