What Xola Mlambo wishes for TS Galaxy after unpleasant stint

Former TS Galaxy midfielder Xola Mlambo has revealed what he wishes for the club following his unpleasant stint, which he described as a ‘desperate’ move.

Mlambo has been a free agent for over six months after parting company with The Rockets at the start of the 2023/24 DStv Premiership season.

The 32-year-old star spent one season with TS Galaxy after signing from AmaZulu FC at the beginning of the last campaign. ‘Ten Ten’ as he’s affectionately known, featured in 25 matches across all competitions and scored one goal while providing one assist.

Mlambo made a name for himself in the Motsepe Foundation Championship with the now-defunct All Stars before breaking into the top-flight with Chippa United in 2015. Mlambo went on to play for clubs such as Bidvest Wit and Orlando Pirates.

The skilful midfielder endured a frustrating exit at Galaxy. He was not handed his clearance despite his contract being terminated at the club.

While Mlambo admitted that he faced hostile treatment at the Mpumalanga-based side, he disclosed that he wants to see Galaxy succeed only because some of his friends still turn out for the club.

“We have to face the reality, when something is done is done, there is no anger from my side,” Mlambo told FARPost.

“I still wish TS Galaxy well because there are so many players I’m close with at the club. I mean the relationship I have with [Mlungisi] Mbunjana, which comes from a long way when we were still trying to find our way into the professional ranks.

“So, I started playing with Mbunjana when we were playing varsity football games. We found ourselves playing for the same team at All Stars.

“I would be evil if I said I want to see TS Galaxy doing bad; my heart is pure and clear. I moved past TS Galaxy and the experience; I mean, why would I want to wish them bad? Those are my colleagues; we play in the same field, so I want to see every footballer succeed and provide for their families.

“Being at TS Galaxy was a lesson for me; the stint was short, and it put me in a situation where I find myself without a club for six to seven months”
