Sipho Mbule Saddened Following Allegations of Arriving Drunk to Mamelodi Sundowns Practice
- Mamelodi Sundowns' troublesome midfielder Sipho Mbule disgraced himself once again this season
- He and Andile Jali reportedly arrived drunk to practice in separate incidents
- A contrite and regretful Mbuli is reportedly looking to make amends for his behaviour
Sipho Mbuli did not cover himself in glory recently at Mamelodi Sundowns.
Already a lightning rod of trouble at SuperSport United, he disgraced himself by reportedly arriving to practice drunk recently. This was something his teammate Andile Jali was also accused of same recklessness in a separate incident, with both players being punished for their actions.
It now turns out that Mbule regrets his behaviour and intends to straighten out his life and attempt to repair his image.

“It is not nice when you have a lot of people looking up to you and you end up disappointing them. It is not really a nice feeling and Sipho is really upset about that. I don’t want to deny or confirm that the allegations are true, but something happened at the club and that is why he has been out of the team.
“All he wants to do now is work really hard and be a regular in the Sundowns team. He knows that he has the talent and he is capable of achieving anything that he wants in football."
Mokwena discusses alcohol abuse
Sundowns coach Rulani Mokwena, while not forthcoming about Mbule's alleged alcohol abuse, had his say on wider issues, as was reported by Sports Brief.

In the middle of a discussion on SuperSport's absorbing talk show Sitting With Stan, Robert Marawa asked Modabi if he once played under the influence, which the player confirmed.
