“Good luck tata. Always stay humble with controlled aggression. Work even harder and be ready for new unfamiliar challenges,” he wrote on social media.

“Embrace them, smile with them and overcome them to conquer. Take deep and serious pride in your strides. 

“Strive not to return anytime soon. Strive to write [your] own history and accomplish your goals and dreams. The kid next is drawing inspiration from you. Stay blessed,” the Kodstad-born tactician added.

Staying with the Glamour Boys, Thatayaone Ditlhokwe is having a special holiday at home in Gulubane, Botswana. The 24-year-old will be starting a career at Kaizer Chiefs in July.

As The South African previously reported in recent months, Amakhosi scooped the Botswana international on a pre-contract. The 24-year-old will join the Soweto giants after 87 appearances in the Premier Soccer League with Matsatsantsa a Pitori.

Having played with the new Chiefs star at Matsatantsa this season, Hlatshwayo has something to say to Ditlhokwe.

“I told him [Thatoyaone Ditlhokwe] that he reminds me of my partnership with Buhle Mkhwanazi at Bidvest Wits,” Hlatshwayo said via FARPost.

“When you look at that partnership, it was the core of the team, from defence, midfielders until the strikers.

“So he also has resemblance of me when I was still a youngster. I was also shy and not wanting to talk to the media, just doing his job quietly.

“He’s strong boy, he is the captain of Botswana. I’m not saying he should stay at SuperSport but he needs to be the legend of Botswana.

“When I first heard of his move to Chiefs, I told him to give SuperSport his all in these last games because they brought him to the country.

“I told him that there’s lot of things that are gonna come his away because I’ve been there and done that.

“So for him is just to stay humble. They’ll want you to change their fortunes and keep cleansheets,” the former Orlando Pirates defender concluded.
