Tsutsulupa helps Ladybrand youngsters


The Birds midfielder is involved in helping his hometown’s Vodacom Second Division side Manyatseng United.

His uncle Thabo Tsutsulupa, who played for Bloemfontein Celtic under Styles Phumo, is the coach of the Ladybrand team.

“I do assist Manyatseng United financially now and again, to cover certain costs of running the club,” the dreadlocked player tells Kick Off.com.

“It’s my home team and most of the youngsters look up to me as a role model. My uncle Thabo is the head coach of the team and what really impresses me is that the players show him respect.

“There is a lot of talent in our area so it is a matter of us ensuring that the youngsters are guided properly and that is why during my breaks I pass on what I have learned in the professional ranks,” he adds.
