Molangoane said he had to remain strong while the two clubs fought over who he belongs to.

After a few months, the Premier Soccer League eventually ruled that he was a Glamour Boy.

“I knew it was going to come to an end because I didn’t sign a contract with them. It took so much for me to survive that time. It wasn’t easy,” said the diminutive 28-year-old winger.

He revealed that while case over who he rightfully belonged to was going on, he was training at Amakhosi.

“I wasn’t staying at home doing nothing. I was here working because I had signed a contract with them and not Chippa,” he said.
