Maluleka wants to mix play and studies


Maluleka, who turned 19 on Monday, the day he landed from Germany where he had been playing in a youth tournament, wrote his final year exams last year while on loan at TUKS.

“In all the subjects that I sat for which include English, Criminology, Computer Science, Business Economics; I only failed Mathematics which I will be rewriting. But I am okay with the way that I did in my studies considering that I had to also keep my focus on football,” says the talented forward.

“I am thinking about studying further, but the football part of my life also needs more attention now that I am at a Premiership club. But should it happen that it becomes possible to balance the two then I want to study marketing management as I have a passion for that field.

“I will be meeting with my business manager so that we see if I can still play football and continue with my studies,” he tells

Having already started training with United the slippery forward says he is delighted at the prospect of being in the Premiership.

“I am obviously excited at the prospect of having to fight for a jersey at Supersport. I have already started training with my new team mates and the learning curve has already started, although hard work will remain my motto,” he says.

Despite having been signed by Supersport at the beginning of the season from TUKS, the Tembisa-born striker was then loaned back to the university team to enable him to finish his matric studies before making the move.
