Mbulelo Mabizela is regarded by many as one of the greatest defenders to ever play in the Premier Soccer League. Most football fans and pundits had even no doubts that someday he would feature for one of the best teams in Europe.
In a career filled with scandals and controversies, he never went to reach those set targets.
The Kwa Zulu Natal born player was just phenomenal during his playing days, he was one of those calm defenders who had the ability to read the game. During his playing days he went to feature for Maritzburg City, Orlando Pirates, Tottenham Hotspurs, Valerenga FC, Mamelodi Sundowns, Mpumalanga Black Aces, Bidvest Wits and Platinum Stars.
He went to knock on Manenzhe’s room finding six players, he instructed them to form a line and gave each of the team R3000. He later went to brag saying that he can afford to give them so much as he is now getting paid in pounds and also suggesting that the money was only pocket change.
