Malokase spent the last three seasons at Platinum Stars after initially joining them on loan back in 2012. The move was made permanent a few months after leaving the Soweto Giants.

He went on to win the MTN8 and the Telkom Knockout with Dikwena in 2013. This coupled with their second place finish in the 2012/13 PSL season saw him contribute to the most successful period in the club’s history.

The midfielder played for the Buccaneers for two seasons after leaving Bloemfontein Celtic in 2010.

The 33-year-old has decided to call time on his career before his contract with Platinum Stars expires in June.

Speaking to Soccer Laduma, Malokase seemed at peace with his decision and took the time to thank those who contributed to his long career.

“I’m very much grateful to have played for this long, and there are plenty of people that I’d sincerely like to thank from the bottom of my heart,” Malokase began.

“Mr. Khoarai, the chairman of Bloemfontein Young Tigers, Free State Stars’ chairman, Mr. Mike Mokoena, Mr. Jimmy Augusti of Bloemfontein Celtic, Dr. Irvin Khoza at Orlando Pirates and Mr. Cliff Ramoroa all deserve a special mention for what they’ve done for my career.”

Malokase began his career playing for Young Tigers in 2000 and made his PSL debut in 2005.
