Former Orlando Pirates left back Thabo Matlaba is one of the few people who can play equally with both his right and left feet, but Matlaba Wa not born a left footed player he is actually a right footed player who was trained to play with his left foot the hard way.

The former Black Leopards captain who is now playing for Swallows FC was trained by the former Orlando Pirates goal poacher Jerry Skhosana who never allowed him to touch the ball with his right foot.

According g to farpost.co.za, at training, whenever Matlaba touched the ball with his right foot, it would be a foul and the ball would be given to the other side, and that is how he learnt 5o play with his left foot.


"At training, Thabo Matlaba was the only player disallowed from using both feet. Each time he touched the ball with his right, Jerry Sikhosana would award the opposite team a foul," farpost.co.za reports.
