Masilela says he squandered the money he earned throughout his football career on alcohol and did not invest or save it.
“I drank all my money and I only have myself to blame,” Masilela told DailySun. “I even failed to buy myself a house ekasi and never had flashy cars even though I was a football star.”
The former Bafana Bafana winger has no regrets over how he used his money but would like his life to be a lesson to some players.
“I played football for the love of it and nothing else. I don’t regret becoming a professional player because football was in my heart. I’m not complete without football and cannot live without it.”
