Molefe hopes to make comeback at Thanda


The 29-year-old from Potchefstroom, who represented the national team in the 2002 World Cup Finals in Korea, last saw action with the Buccaneers.

Thabang tells that coaches don’t want to give him another chance.

_quote“I have been trying without success to arrange trials with teams that know what I am capable of.

“The only club that has agreed to look at me is Thanda Royal Zulu FC. I am going there for trials during pre-season training, but nothing is concrete as we will only talk after my trials.”

Molefe, who also spent time with the French League side Le Mans, has been training alone under the watchful eye of his former Ezenkosi teammate Patrick Chuenehanye who now coaching juniors in Cosmos’ development ranks.

“Patrick has been helpful in keeping me in shape and monitoring my progress. So far I have not gained any weight and am maintaining my fitness level.

“I am not tied to any agent. I have cut ties with Prosport International and have my clearance, I can negotiate my own contract and negotiations are wide open,” he says.

Pressed to disclose what went wrong during his one season stay Pirates, he answers curtly: “I am not going to talk that; Pirates and I had a relationship which is now ended and I don’t see any point in answering that question.”

Chuenehanye is confident that Molefe still has what it takes to make a comeback to the elite league.

“It is a shame to see a player of Thabang’s calibre without a team. I have been assessing him for a number of months and he is super fit now. If he can land a deal, I don’t think his new team will be disappointed.”
