Siyabulela Shai is going off the rails because of his unacceptable behaviour, cries Pitso Mosimane.

Once touted to be the next Jabu Mahlangu, 23-year-old Shai showed great potential, but his career has since taken a dip.

“We tried to get him right. He comes from the academy and the boy is unbelievable, he has got so much talent, but unfortunately he does not balance his social life with football and it is a sad case. Unfortunately we can just do so much. I wanted to register him for the Champions League.

“He really upsets me, he comes back and he doesn’t come to training. It is unfortunate when you see talent like that. You just ask who can help boys like these, like Masibusane Zongo? We are losing top talent,” said Mosimane.

Shai was on loan at Maritzburg United last season, but the Team of Choice decided to send him back to Sundowns in January after he allegedly went back to his old ways.
