Durban - Former Lamontville Golden Arrows midfielder, Njabulo Sithole, traded the football field for the courtroom as he graduated with a Masters of Commerce in Maritime Studies at the University of KwaZulu-Natal on Friday.
Sithole, 25, got his BA Law degree in 2017 while still on the books of the Premier Soccer League football club and is now one step closer to being admitted as an attorney of the High Court.
“Next year I should be admitted and then I can do whatever I want because I still have dreams of playing football and in the PSL (Premier Soccer League),” he said.
Sithole, 25, currently works as a Maritime Lawyer for Bidvest, a long way from when he used to line up in midfield as a young, promising prospect alongside Bafana Bafana and Arrows stalwart, Thandoyise Khuboni.
“It’s been a life of sacrifices, as much as I had a dream to become a soccer player, I can wake up any day and play soccer but I can’t wake up and practise law,” he said.
