“Sometimes things happen, you get a lot of frustration and end up having depression.” the Orlando Pirates star said as quoted by SoccerLaduma.

“Depression makes you do things and I don’t want to talk about it, for now, it is personal but now I’m okay and want to play football.

“Besides not playing football, there were a lot of things that were happening in my life personally which caused the depression but I don’t want to talk about it.

“What I’ve learned at Orlando Pirates, as a player you have to work hard, be disciplined and always understand your role.

“Always be professional, respect yourself and others around you. You’re always playing for the badge, not for yourself.”
