No bad blood between Marumo Gallants and ex-Chiefs midfielder

An ex-Kaizer Chiefs midfielder insists there is no bad blood between him and his former club, Marumo Gallants, who are competing in the Motsepe Foundation Championship.

The player parted ways with Gallants when the team was relegated from the DStv Premiership last season, having spent four seasons at the club since joining them back in 2020. 

Before leaving Gallants, this publication understood that the club was grooming the players in question to take over as the team manager. However, the side made a U-turn on the midfielder who has been helping with the club’s administration staff.

The player in this case is 36-year-old Joseph Molangoane, who is currently turning out for the Limpopo ABC Motsepe League outfit, Sunrise FC.

In the four seasons that he spent with the Bahlabane ba Ntwa, Molangoane managed to feature in 64 games, scoring six and weighing in with two assists.

Molangoane revealed to this publication that he holds no grudge against his ex-club despite what transpired.

He went on to make an analogy with his recent move to Platinum City Rovers, which did not materialise.

“You know, most of the things that are behind me, I don’t like to talk about them. You know how football works. Football people say certain things, and they do the opposite,” Molangoane told FARPost.

“So, for me, it was just a learning curve at Marumo. Whatever happened happened. I don’t have any problem with them, and I wish them all the best. The fact that things didn’t work out between me and them, it’s okay despite doing the opposite which is football.

“The same with Platinum City Rovers, they said the other thing and did the opposite, that’s how football people work. I don’t think is something that will change now.”

Molangoane continued: “One thing they must understand with players is that it’s not every player desperate to play and be seen on TV. It’s more than that. For me, football is more than being seen on TV. It’s something that makes me. Football is something that gives me peace and getting joy out of it.”
