Salulani reveals how PSL legends helped him adapt in South Africa
Adapting to a new environment in football is hard for most players even when the new environment is within the same country but worse off when you move to another country.
Former Sensational Zanaco midfielder Salulani Phiri was however luck following his move to South African PSL side Polokwane City back in 2016 as he found fellow Zambian players willing to help him adapt to the life in South Africa quickly.
Salulani revealed to the ZamFoot Crew in an exclusive interview that PSL legends like Kennedy Mweene, Collins Mbesuma, and Isaac Chansa helped him with the dos and don’ts of the PSL to make his transition smooth.
“The change was quite tough at the same time easy because I had people that I could communicate with about the league. Mbesuma could call me every week after watching the game to help me with the do’s and don’ts so did Mweene and Isaac Chansa and also my teammates helped a lot for me to adapt,” Salulani said.
Being away from his family makes things hard for the Chipolopolo midfielder but having fellow Zambians in the league helps him feel a bit at home despite being in a foreign country.
“It’s a difficult one because you I’m unable to spend time with your family and friends but work must continue,” he said.
“Yeah it helps a lot because we are able to communicate and just playing each other feels at home,” he added.
Salulani joined Polokwane City in December 2016 and has since played 77 games for the Limpopo based side with five goals, a few assists, and a number of man of the match awards to his name.
