Former Absa Premiership footballer, Noah Chivuta, says Lazarous Kambole’s career could suddenly end in the blink of an eye.
The 36-year-old Chivuta made 153 PSL appearances for the likes of SuperSport United, Maritzbug United and Bidvest Wits, before moving to Thailand’s Lamphun Warriors.
Chatting about Kambole’s struggling start in Soweto, Chivuta said: “I heard more about him when he was at Zesco that he did well and he had some call ups to the national team. So, I watched him play and I saw that he had the potential,” Chivuta told Soccer Laduma.
“I know a little bit about him and I thought he was one of the promising players. But since that big move he made, I think he has failed to live up to the standard and it’s very discouraging for a young man, because his career could end like that. That’s where it needs mental strength.
The veteran left-back believes that Kambole urgently needs support to rekindle his confidence before it is too late.
“If you are not strong mentally it can ruin your career. That confidence he had when he was at Zesco, he doesn’t have it anymore.
“Wherever he can go (in his next move), if there’s no one to guide him to bring that confidence back, somebody to lift him up, he could struggle,” concluded the AFCON and Absa Premiership champion.
