Mhlathe was always prepared beyond the field of play

Mhlathe advises up and coming young stars to invest in education.

SEDIBENG.- Former Jomo Cosmos FC right-winger, Lucky Mhlathe, knew that when his football career came to an end he would fall back on his education.
This SuperSport Football Channel commentator/analyst is one of the few ex-professional football players who prepared themselves for life beyond the field of play.
Speaking to Sedibeng Ster Sport, Mhlathe said he knew that one day he would fall back on his education when his football career is over. He told Sedibeng Ster Sport that when he signed a contract with Jomo Cosmos, his studies were part of his future.
“I started playing for Jomo Cosmos at a young age and Jomo Sono (Jomo Cosmos’ owner) used to encourage us to finish our matric first if we wanted to sign a first team contract.
“This motivated me to study hard and pass my matric and today I’m grateful because I listened to him. I furthered my studies in Public Relations because it was always my desire to work in broadcasting football one day.
“I couldn’t imagine myself doing anything except football. I grew up in football and I’m who I am because of football. This sport gave me hope and everything.
“Today I’m well respected because of football. I want to thank Bra J (Jomo Sono) for the person who I am today. The man played a big role, not only in my football career, but also in my life,” said Mhlathe.
Mhlathe advises up and coming young stars to invest in education.
He told Sedibeng Ster Sport that if it wasn’t for education, he could have ended up like some of the ex-professional players, who today struggle to make ends meet.
This Sebokeng born star said he intends to conduct workshops for youngsters so that he can advise them about the importance of having a qualification.
