A formal Sundowns player has opened up about why he left the club to join Kaizer Chiefs.
As a result of his outstanding playmaking ability, Dladla attracted the attention of several clubs, and he was eventually sold to AGF Aarhus at the end of the 2001/02 season. In the following two weeks, he made his professional debut, scoring in a 4–3 triumph over Viborg to give them their first victory in over a month. Sibusiso Zuma, a fellow countryman, also scored a goal for his team against Esjberg. According to Danish publications, Dladla outshined Zuma, and Dladla went on to say that Zuma was a liar "What exactly is all the commotion about Sibusiso Zuma? I'm far superior to him! "..... On May 29, 2004, he made his final appearance for Aarhus against the same team against which he made his debut, Viborg FF, and lost 2–0. In 2004, he signed for Mamelodi Sundowns, where he scored 15 goals in 122 games while helping the club win the SAA Supa8, the Nedbank Cup, and two league crowns. He made his professional debut on February 7, 2009, in a 2–1 loss to the Moroka Swallows. He scored his first goal in a 3–0 win over Bidvest Wits on November 29, 2011, when he made a solo run from the center of the field into the box in the 90th minute.
Dladla: Why I dumped from Mamelodi Sundowns to Kaizer Chiefs.
Josta Dladla, a former Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder, has revealed the reason for his transfer from Masandawana to Amakhosi. Dladla previously stated that he was transferred because he wanted to play in the Premier League.
After a lengthy stint with the Tshwane giants, the Johannesburg-born former professional footballer joined Amakhosi in 2009 in order to further his footballing career.
This week, the legend revealed why he made the decision, asserting that he desired more money, which the squad was unwilling to provide.
iDiski Times edition 46 features an interview with Dladla in which he says: "(Laughs) both of them, serious because I played amazingly for Wits as a 19-year-old, then I played amazingly for Sundowns, I had so many excellent players around me, and we won two league titles there."
"I believe something went wrong when my contract came to an end, and I was unable to collect the money that I was owed." As a result of my feelings of betrayal, Chiefs gave me the money, and I accepted the offer.
"The Sundowns fans will say that I performed well at Sundowns, and the Chiefs fans would say the same thing about me at their club; these are two fantastic teams that assisted me in my career." As a result, I'll leave it up to the fans."
Former Chiefs forward Dladla, who also played in the Danish Superliga with AGF Aarhus, spent six seasons with the club, scoring 17 goals and registering seven assists in 119 appearances.
