Read Below Excerpts From The Statement..
So I’m writing to you to say thank you, but also farewell…
This month will be my last with Soccer Laduma and my last in South Africa. After almost a decade in this fantastic country. I will be moving on to take up an exciting new job back in the UK.
Honestly, i don’t even know where to start, While I’m excited for my new chapter and the chance to move into English footbll and travel the country watching the game that i love, i do leave this country with a heavy heart.
South Africa has become and will always be, my second home. I cannot even begin to thank all the people that i have come into contact with over the past nine years, personally, professionally and on all the crazy social media platforms we engage on.
I have memories for a lifetime that have been made here. The CAF Champions Legaue final with Orlando Pirates in Cairo, watching Kazier Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns lift league titles, that trip to Lubumbashi with Supersport United. These are football stories that i will tell until the day i die. I’m so proud to have been associated with the PSL, with Bafana, with this whole football fraternity.
To everybody that took me in, that welcomed me (and even to those that didn’t), thank you for helping me become who i am today, you have all played a role in some way, shape or form.
The timing of everything has been, as i’m sure you can imagine a bit mad. My move is something that’s been in the works for a bit of time now, but it didn’t feel right to talk of leaving while the country was in lockdown and focusing on far more important matters. Now though, with the start of my new job imminent, i needed to say something.
This isn’t goodbye. South African football is a part of me now, it’s engrained but i will be returning to my first love, I couldn’t turn down the chance to cover English football again ( I’ve been telling you i’m not a chiefs or pirates fan!), and go back to my roots.
Mzansi, you have taken up a piece in my hear that will forever remain.
