"I Wanted More Money but they Didn't Want to Pay, I Felt Betrayed, " Chiefs Legend Speaks Out

Over the years Mamelodi Sundowns Football Club has been accused of poaching top soccer stars from other teams to theirs and promising them top bucks to keep them at Chloorkop. While some have managed to stay and play, some have not been lucky enough to make it to the first team, they end up languishing on the grand stands. This has forced some to move in a bid to get playing time elsewhere.

Some moved because money was simply to enough to keep them, contrary to reports that Sundowns was the best paying club in the Premier Soccer League.

Former player Josta Dladla has revealed that he left the club after they had fights about money.

"I couldn’t get the money that I wanted. I felt betrayed and Chiefs offered me the money and I went to Chiefs."

Josta Dladla finally admits why he left Mamelodi Sundowns for Kaizer Chiefs.

After a long spell at the Tshwane giants, the Johannesburg born former pro footballer has joined Amakhosi in 2009 to persuade his career.

The legend has now opened up on why he took the decision, saying he wanted more money, which the team was not willing to pay.

Dladla did however not reveal how much he wanted from Sundowns and how much Chiefs offered him for his services.

He has since retired but when he retired he was no longer with Amakhosi but Soweto rivals, Swallows Football Club.

Dladla was born in Soweto and lived with his grandmother. His first pair of boots were the Puma Jomo Sono King and they were given to him by a family friend in 1986. He attended the Tsugang Primary School in Soweto. His father worked in England and he boarded a flight for the first time when he was in Grade 8 in 1995 when he went to visit him during the December holidays.
