Marumo Gallants veteran midfielder Joseph “Tight” Molangoane is looking forward to the start of the new season and says the lessons he has learnt in football have made him tough.
Gallants will open their 2022/23 campaign against Stellenbosch FC at the Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane on Saturday, August 6.
The former Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs attacking forward says he is also indebted to Amakhosi after they did not dump him when his career looked like it was over after a horrendous injury.
In August 2018, his shin snapped like a twig after a 50/50 situation with Free State Stars’ strapping defender Makhehleni Makhaula. He was 30 years old.
“Chiefs helped me a lot in terms of my injury and healing, so that I find myself in this position that I am today, where I am still able to make a living through football. It was not easy at all at that time. I also prayed a lot and the support I got from home was amazing and the most important thing when I was going through the worst,” said Molangoane.
