According to sources close to former Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs striker Bongani Ndulula, no team is interested in signing the striker, and he has resorted to playing amateur tournaments and indoor soccer in recent years to supplement his income.
Ndulula has been without a club since 2017, when he parted ways with Chippa United, having joined the club from Amakhosi.
While playing for Bloemfontein Celtic, the former Bafana Bafana goalkeeper established himself as a household name. After being acquired by the Buccaneers in 2010, his career took off even further.
After going through trials with a number of teams in both the GladAfrica Championship and the DStv Premiership, the Eastern Cape-born player has failed to return to the professional ranks, despite having an impressive background.
“He’s been to a lot of trials, but he’s been turned down at every one of them,” a source revealed.
In the meanwhile, as previously mentioned,
There have been reports that the Pirates have reopened negotiations with Cape Town City over the probable transfer of Thabo Nodada to the Soweto side. Several sources claim that the club’s management is dissatisfied with the type of players the team has in midfield.
“The technical team expressed concern that they would be unable to deploy a range of systems in the team due to the fact that they had the same type of players.”
“As a result, the management has gone out to try to obtain other players who have been recommended by the technical team, and Thabo Nodada is one of the individuals who has caught their attention.
“I believe that discussions have already begun, and it is possible that certain swap arrangements will be negotiated to make it more attractive for City,” the insider said.
He has been linked with a number of big clubs in recent months, most notably Kaizer Chiefs. However, City moved quickly to tie him down to a contract until the end of 2024 earlier this year, making any potential move one to keep a close eye on.
