Speaking to TK via the TK Solutions YouTube Channel, Ndulula suggested that having a humble or no car at all when you play for a big team almost invites disrespect from your teammates.

The former Chippa United and AmaZulu striker further added to admit that unrealistic pride tends to creep in when you’re at a big club

“This thing of feeling pressure to buy big fancy cars comes from what you see around you,” the former Amakhosi center forward added.

“You see a certain player drive a certain car, and you think I am better than this player.

“You just don’t care if your salaries are not the same.

“As long as I afford that car, I don’t have a problem. I drive a car I love.

“Aubrey Mothiba [former Pirates forward], once said, ‘“if you want a car and afford it, just go for it. You can realise you don’t enjoy it that much once you get it and sending it back is not a problem,”’Nduluala added.

“You can buy your Range Rover or BMW,” he concluded.
