Clubless Ndulula: Why I left Chiefs


Forgotten former Kaizer Chiefs striker Bongani 'Drogba' Ndulula has revealed why he left the club four years ago.

At the end of the 2015/16 season Ndulula and Chiefs agreed mutually to part ways after he fell out of favour under former coach Steve Komphela.

"Chiefs? [Sighing] Hey, but you know what, there's no player that can be happy when he is not playing, no matter how much money you get. If you are not playing, you won't be happy," Ndulula tells

"There's nothing wrong that happened between me and Chiefs but it's just that maybe it wasn't my time to play yet during that time. My relationship with the coach was good, he's a people's person that one. He likes people."

The 30-year-old has been without a club since leaving Chippa United in January 2017 but says he can still give a good five years to a PSL or NFD team.

"Currently I still don't have a team, I'm still checking," he says.

"I last played three years ago. But I'm still very much fit, I go to the gym, I play indoor soccer, I play 11-a-side. My plan is to get a team before the season ends. I'm still fresh – five, six seasons I can still play. I'm still fresh.

"I wish I can tell you what went wrong in my career but I also don't know. Even today I've been asking myself the same question. Eish, we don't know.

"But for now I don't have an agent. But I will get a team soon. I'm available to any team that can give me a chance. I will make sure I use that chance. I'm still available, ndikhona.

"There are people who stay five years without a team but still manage to come back and play. I don't want to put myself under pressure but if I can get that chance I will score many goals. I believe in myself. Only if I can get a team."
