Maluleke waits for clarity from Thanda


Maluleke (31) is still contracted to the club, with a year remaining on his contract.

“What I know is that I am definitely not going to be playing for Thanda this season,” Maluleke tells

“They have already told me that I am not in the plans for this season even though they never gave me a reason why I am not in their plans since I have never been given a chance.

“So for now I am just waiting to hear from them about how my official exit from the club will be made. I am at peace with my situation and I am fine with the prospect of leaving the club.

“For now, I will continue going to training like I have always done because I still have a contract to respect. I have to be strong in this situation because even if I go training I am just part of the warm up and the running exercises and when it is time to play the ball I am never selected. I have no doubt about my talent as I know I am a better finisher than some of the players being played.

“I just want the situation to be resolved. We are in negotiations at the moment regarding my exit. I am sure whatever reason why I haven’t played is known to the coach Roger Palmgren; but I still believe in myself,” says Maluleke.

The nomadic striker played just once last season and had spent most of the remaining time watching from the stands.

However, has gathered that Maluleke fell out of favour with Palmgren last year during a trip to play Orlando Pirates and has never been fielded since.

Maluleke is studying in Durban and is set to complete his Diploma in Sports Management in September. He already holds another qualification in Property Management and Real Estate.
