Cape Town - Jomo Cosmos boss Jomo Sono has advised Masibusane Zongo to find help to overcome his drinking problem.

The 26-year-old winger has a history of ill-discipline and was recently fired by Platinum Stars for unspecified misconduct.

Zongo had also been dismissed at previous clubs SuperSport United, Bivest Wits and Chippa United.

"I have given you my opinion that he is good player but if he screws around I couldn't help him. Nobody else can help him and he must help himself. It is up to him if he wants to enjoy life," Sono told KickOff.

"There is one thing I always tell my players: beer, we were all born and we found our parents drinking beer... our grandparents were drinking beer, our great, great parents drinking utshwala (liquor) so you are competing with something that has been there forever and it won't help you.

"Beer has been there for decades and you have only five or four years to play football and make money and enjoy it.

"I tell them (my players) that bottle will stand there and tomorrow morning when you come it's still there so you can't compete with nice time... nice time has been there for all these years."
