EX-AJAX STAR EXCITED ABOUT SERERO’S POSSIBLE RETURN TO MZANSI
The former Ajax and AmaZulu midfielder who is now serving as the secretary general of the South African Football Player’s Union looks at Serero’s link with Mzansi clubs including Spurs.
“I think if it happens that Thulani returns to the club, it will inspire confidence to the other players and will benefit the brand identity,” Shabalala told Sunday World.
“After all, giving back where you started is always encouraged to show appreciation and pay homage to the brand that helped in shaping his career.
“But we must also be mindful that this as it may happen comes with financial responsibilities that the club has to fulfil to a certain extent.
“Affordability also plays a role but also key is to discover if the vision and mission of the club resonates with his views, short and/or long-term ambitions.”
SERERO LINKED WITH MZANSI GIANTS CHIEFS
As the South African recently reported, Serero has also been linked with moves to Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns and he is yet to decide on his future.
An informant known to The South African, shared his thoughts on the possibility of seeing the fan favourite in the DStv Premiership.
“No, I didn’t know that Chiefs want Thulani and he hasn’t shared anything with me as yet. However, I doubt he will join Chiefs,” the source tells The South African.
