Sox was last in the books of home-town club Polokwane City has struggled to find a new club, giving wise words to young players, saying;
“From my side I can simply say they (footballers) must carry on you know. I mean look at CR7 (Christiano Ronaldo) and (Lionel) Messi, they have been doing it year-in-year-out, so it does not have duration (referring to form).
“They shouldn’t be satisfied, they have to keep pushing as long as they have an opportunity. I mean opportunities are rare in football, there is only 2200 professionals in a population of 57 million people? So you can see there is not much platforms so when they get an opportunity, they must use it,” concluded the passionate Segolela.
