Former Kaizer Chiefs player Puso Dithejane has learned how unpredictable football is. The 19-year-old has made his senior debut in Mpumalanga and in a new playing position.


Remember what happened last year? Due to the younger kids going away for school exams, Dithejane was booked by Amakhosi to be a ball boy/ball retriever at the FNB Stadium against AmaZulu in October.

The DStv Diski Challenge right-back and U20 international simply refused to honour the idea. Chiefs soon decided to release the young player Dithejane, along with Unathi Mdaka, on condition the buyer would pay R1.5 million development compensation.

TS Galaxy later sealed a deal. “We are pleased to announce our signing of Puso Dithejane, who previously played for the Kaizer Chiefs DDC team. Welcome Home Young Rocket,” the club Mbombela-based club announced the former Chiefs player.

Dithejane later sent an apology to Amakhosi.

“Somehow the thing that I did wasn’t good because I’m not bigger than the team. I respect that and I respect the club,” Dithejane told FARPost.

“So, for me, to do that to the team, I wasn’t respectful. But then I didn’t mean to do it. I respect the brand and I’m not bigger than the brand.

“What I learnt is one shouldn’t be afraid to make mistakes and all of us in football make mistakes. One can only learn from their mistakes and do better going forward,” the former Chiefs player added.


Meanwhile, Dithejane is not doing too badly at Galaxy. The former Chiefs player has enjoyed four good performances as a right midfielder.

“It’s not challenging for me playing in the offensive role,” Dithejane told FARPost. I’ve always been playing right-back and right-wing for a longer period inthe development.

“I’m used to that position and I believe I’m ready to step up, do my best and deliver to that position the coach wants me to play.

“For me, the only thing I have to improve on my game is to get more involved on the ball. It would be great if I start being active in the team’s attack.

“My personal aim is to start helping the team as much as possible and contributing towards goals. It would be great if I start scoring a lot of goals and providing many assists for my teammates,” the former Chiefs star concluded.
