Segolela: Why I'm now clubless

Premiership

Former Orlando Pirates favourite Tlou Segolela has been out of action for over two years now and reveals why his playing career is fading away.

Football is a short career that requires more than talent as you also need luck to have a long career, and 'Sox' reveals that perhaps he has not had the luck.

The 32-year-old's last top-flight stint was with Polokwane City in 2017.

"I'm still around man, I'm not playing but I'm still involved in football with ABC Motsepe League team Polokwane City Rovers. I'm a football manager there," he tells KickOff.com.

"This is football. It's all about opportunities. If you no longer get them, it is what it is. It also doesn't have a duration, it can happen any time."

Segolela was part of the Pirates side that won a double treble after 2010 and also reached the CAF Champions League final in 2013.

His career after leaving Buccaneers was never the same but he says he doesn't have any regrets and is still available to play in any league if he were to get an opportunity.

"I don't have any regrets, I've done my part. Sometimes you have to accept that football is all about opportunities and the needs of the club is more than [needs of] players," he explains.

"I haven't retired, I'm still available to play for any club. It can either be Absa Premiership or GladAfrica Championship, as long as I'm getting any opportunity to play because football is my life."
