On Thursday George Lebese wrote that while at Kaizer Chiefs he made a decision that was not ok for the team at that time, but the support and love he still gets from the fans is for life.
“The truth is I’m gonna keep attaching myself to a team that gave me a big break bcos of the love but the big problem is I made a decision that was not ok for the team at that time, but the support and love I still get from the fans is for life,” wrote George Lebese.
“Would you ever consider rejoining KC if the opportunity arises?” asked a fan, of which he replied, “I’m happy I got the opportunity forever grateful, but now I’m happy at @SwitchbacksFC.”
George Lebese joined Amakhosi ahead of the 2008-09 season. He signed with Mamelodi Sundodnws in August 2017. He went on to spend time on loan at Supersport United before being released in September last year (2019). He later (2019) moved to Colorado Springs Switchbacks for the 2020 season.
George Lebese has previously admitted that he was still happy at Kaizer Chiefs when he decided to leave them for the Brazilians and he was disappointed how things turned out.
Admitting that there were a lot of “temptations” at the time, George Lebese didn’t blame anyone but himself for making the decision but he felt it’s what he thought was right when he left Amakhosi for Sundowns, even though he was still happy at Naturena.
Speaking with MarawaTV, the Mamelodi-born player in 2019 confessed that Sundowns isn’t a patient team and he thought they would afford him the time to get used to the environment at Chloorkop.
“When I got there, they had lots of quality players and it’s not a patient team. And I’m coming from a team where in the past few months I was not playing getting there I needed time and momentum to get used to a different philosophy that I was introduced to,” said George Lebese then.
