Thulani Hlatshwayo Is #ReadyForSport with Adidas. The Bafana Bafana captain was enthralled to share Adidas’ back to sports campaign. The defender is a consummate representative for the three stripes.
It is unclear what the immediate future of Tyson looks like at the moment. Should everything remain the same, he will be uprooted to Limpopo with the rest of the squad.
When the news of Wits’ sale was announced, a mass clear-out was on the cards for the Clever Boys. Players like Tyson and Buhle Mkhwanazi were strongly linked with a move to Orlando Pirates. At the moment, it seems Tyson is a Tshakhuma F.C player.

So, Thulani Hlatshwayo is #ReadyForSport with Adidas, but he’s also ready for a momentous switch in his life. Wherever he’ll play, be it Pirates or Tshakhuma, he’ll continue to don his Adidas Predator’s.
A switch to Orlando Pirates would see him join a traditional giant of South African football. Pirates and Adidas have been long term shirt partners, so Tyson would feel right at home.
His stock would also rise above what it currently is. He would grace several posters and billboards as both a Pirates and Adidas representative. For family and personal reasons, he would also stay in Johannesburg.
Although players are professional and shouldn’t take into consideration the location of their football club; it always plays a huge factor. This happens all over the world.
In England, players prefer playing in London. In Spain, players prefer Madrid or Barcelona. In Germany players prefer Munich and in France players prefer Paris. So the location of a football club always determines the stature of player that comes in.
This of course, can be altered by higher wages. This can convince players to stay in unfashionable provinces like Limpopo, over Gauteng. Johannesburg in particular.
