JOHANNEBSURG – Former Bafana Bafana and Mamelodi Sundowns player Jethro Mohlala, popularly known as Lovers Mohlala has warned young players to not be caught in the ‘bling bling’ lifestyle.


Mohlala posted his advice on his Facebook page and warned soccer players not to blow their money, but rather invest it.

“When our parents told us to invest we did not listen. When they told us to stick to one woman and stop wasting money we said is my money. We dumped our first girlfriends that we had when we were playing on the dusty streets,” he wrote on Facebook.

Mohlala played in Greece and for local clubs Jomo Cosmos, Moroka Swallows, AmaZulu and Black Leopards before retiring in 2009.
