George Maluleka is making important moves both on and off the field. While he plays for AmaZulu FC, he also holds the position of Deputy Secretary General of the South African Football Players Union. This union aims to protect the rights of players, but Maluleka’s appointment has raised some eyebrows, as the organization is seen by some as being primarily for former players rather than those currently active in the sport.
Maluleka acknowledges the challenges ahead in his new role, but expresses confidence in the leadership’s ability to help rebrand and rebuild the union. He emphasizes the union’s commitment to serving and protecting players, and the intention to garner more support from current players who may have doubts about the union’s purpose.
