Nomandela not chasing money

Free State Stars midfielder Luyolo Nomandela says he is focused on doing well for his club

Posted: 26 March 2013 Time: 9:37 am

Free State Stars midfielder Luyolo Nomandela says he is focused on doing well for his club and is not fazed by the attraction of the big teams up north.

The 23-year-old has been in fine form this season and was named Man of the Match in a recent 2-1 Nedbank Cup defeat to Bloemfontein Celtic.

Understandably, Nomandela is happy with the way things have gone for him in his debut season in the top-flight.

“So far, so good,” he tells KickOff.com. “I’m enjoying my football at the moment and quite happy to be scoring and creating goals for Stars. However, there is still a lot of room for improvement.”

While former Stars players like Thabo Matlaba, Edward Manqele, Mpho Makola and Ayanda Gcaba have rushed to the big lights of Gauteng, Nomandela says he is in no rush to do so.

“At the moment I want to concentrate on my job with Free State Stars,” he says. “They gave me an opportunity to play in the PSL and want to respect the contract. I don’t want to think about a move because then I will lose focus.

“My time to move will come, but I don’t want to move just for the sake of money.”

This is not Mark Mayambela's type of a player...he plays with a purpose and direction...He is a skilled player who understands modern football......He is a Kaizer Chiefs material...his style of play will make him settle well in the Chiefs starting 11.

We will give the No.11 jersey at Chiefs.......He can own the right wing.....Masango is very inconsistent and Josta is ageing.

If you are ready to move to a big team, there are two teams that can utilise your talent. Chiefs and Pirates. That's where your carrier will blosom. Mamelodi Sundowns you will kiss your career goodbye, ask Myeni. At sundowns football career die slo, slow. Yes there were careers that was destroyed by these teams but mostly it was for players that were given chance. Myeni is playing week in week out, Matoho, also that's the new guys. Where is Manqele and Sangweni.

Unfortunately, thats what all the players say, but when bigger offers come, they sing a different tune. Lets be honest, we all need money in life...I just hope that should you decide to join a bigger team, you will still get game time. Vele it wont be the same coz you will be competing against big stars as well wether you join Chiefs, Bucs or Downs.
So you wont be at any comfort zone and playing for these mantioned teams comes with pressure especially from the fans.
Should you decide to leave, I wish you all the best!!

Ok if its not for Money I count Sundowns out of the race.

Pierats has numerous deadwood midfielders.

Obviously NoMandela/NoMadiba is on his way to Naturena since he's supporting Chiefs and its his dream to play for Amakhosi.

NoMandela is in de same situation as Mathoho:

All players wanna play under Baxter in the PSL

The Briton morphed a meerkat to a beast in Lebese...just imagine what can he do with ths rotweiler Nomandela we will get a Lycan mos.

Except for Masango, Svasiya and Nkosi...all KC players give 100 when given an opportunity by ths Briton...a father and motivational figure.

The master tactician will enhance Nomandela's decision-making acumen but if he chooses Bucs his "alley oop" technique will be enhanced too by the Basketball-batman...

So if this is true we can safely confirm that Mmabush and the light-skinned guy will get a Dr Malinga kick on the face, just like Mathoho's father kick

Personaly I want to see you at Kaizer Chiefs but if you chose Pirates you still have made a good choice. Believe me I hate Pirates with all my heart but there you will get a chance better than at Sundowns. At chiefs, you will have only Dladla for competition and he is not getting any younger. I hope we will also need another right winger. We need 3 right wingers. We have 3 right bach, 3 back, 2 left winger and 1 right winger in respect of Dladla. We need two. So we need you and Dolly. We need Khuboni, then middlefield we are sorted.

Luyolo, you're a quality player and I believe Steve has done a great job with u. I believe you're ready to join a big time like Sundowns. Unlike before at Sundowns, Pitso understands South African players and he said it that he'll a new team come the end of the season.

Make a right decision and be part of the Downs rebuilding. I foresee you, Dove and Manqele combine. Under Pitso guidance you'll make it at Downs. LOOK at Jabu Shongwe
