A close source to former Jomo Cosmos and Mpumalamga Black Aces winger Tshidiso Tukane has told this paper that the former star is struggling financially since he left Aces last year.

Tukane has been unable to get a professional team since then and has been playing amateur football at his home town in Vereeniging.

“It is really bad for him, nothing seems to be happening for Tshidiso in terms of finding a club. But again, he is already 31 and I don’t think any PSL team will want to sign him. There was something promising from a club in the National First Division earlier this year, but the deal did not materialise.

“He is really struggling, I just hope he forgets about football and tries to find a job,” said the source.
