KAIZER CHIEFS LEGEND JOSTA DLADLA ANNOUNCES HIS PODCAST

Announcing his career move earlier this week, Dladla wrote on his Instagram account: “We are very proud to present the first episode of Izinja zeGame, a new weekly and FREE soccer podcast hosted by none other than former Wits, Sundowns, Kaizer Chiefs, Moroka Swallows and Bafana Bafana star Josta Dladla.

The 44-year-old explained that each week he’ll be chatting with football legends about their days on and off the pitch.

“First onto the pitch is the mercurial talent that was Junaid Hartley – a former Bafana Bafana winger who had the world at his feet before falling into a 14-year battle with substance abuse which eventually saw him end up in prison.

“Junaid shares his fight with addiction openly and honestly, and also reflects on coming through at Wits University with his good friend Stanton Fredericks, facing the likes of Thierry Henry and Nicolas Anelka, and incurring the wrath of the legendary Shakes Mashaba.”
