With the new sea­son around the cor­ner,

Ti­mothy Molobi looks at play­ers who need to clean up their act or kiss their ca­reers good­bye

CityPress - - Sport -

There are sev­eral play­ers in the Premier Soc­cer League (PSL) who did not live up to their po­ten­tial last sea­son – and if their form does not im­prove, they could fall by the way­side for­ever.

The rea­sons for the poor per­for­mances are var­ied. For some it has been a lack of game time, while for oth­ers it’s been a case of missed op­por­tu­nity due to loss of form, in­crease in weight or way­ward be­hav­iour.

This week Chippa United gave Mark Mayam­bela a chance to re­deem him­self and get his ca­reer back on track.

The 27-year-old has failed to re­cap­ture the form that made him a fan favourite at Bloem­fontein Celtic, where he played regularly.

His move to Or­lando Pi­rates in 2010 did not yield the ex­pected re­sults, and he tried his luck at Mpumalanga Black Aces – where he did not play a sin­gle game – be­fore mak­ing a move to Swedish side Djurgår­dens IF. Ear­lier this year, he re­turned to South Africa and joined Na­tional First Di­vi­sion side Royal Ea­gles, where he also strug­gled to make an im­pact.
