Cape Town – Mbulelo ‘Old John’ Mabizela joined NFD side Royal Eagles despite Maritzburg United showing a strong interest into signing the veteran.

According to the Citizen, a former backroom employee at Maritzburg reveals that the club were under suspicion that defender was up to no good whilst he was back home in Pietermaritzburg.

“They would instruct me to tell him that they know what he used to get up to when he was home in Pietermaritzburg,” said the unknown former employee.

 “At the time he has an alcohol problem and was suspected of using other banned substances, so they used that.

“Since then he has hated that team. I knew he would never sign for them-even if Clive Barker went to beg him, he would still have declined.”
