Mbulelo Oldjohn Mabizela is a retired professional South African footballer who played primarily as a defender. He did on occasions play in the midfield as well.
Mabizela is currently 38 years old and has had a soccer career that spans 15 years. He was the youngest captain for the South African national team Bafana Bafana at the age of 22.
He was a very talented player and his talent even attracted interests from teams abroad.
However is playing career was full of disciplinary issues which halted his progress in becoming the player he seemingly had the potential to be.
Late 2018 there were reports that he is planning on writing a tell all book where he will go into detail the challenges he faced during his professional playing day.
Mabizela does hope that the book does serve as a cautionary tale to other soccer players.
