The former Sundowns strikers’ house in Limpopo, Venda was burnt down in 2021, which left him truly traumatised.
In an emotional interview with I Love Kaizer Chiefs recently, the Limpopo-born goal-poacher shared the trauma after his unfortunate experiences of life in the past two years.
“It’s never been easy for me, to be honest. The pain does not heal, it doesn’t heal,” Ramagalela told I Love Kaizer Chiefs.
“I was out of the game for a while due to injury and when I got a team (Chippa United), returned to playing again, my house got burned. It was very difficult for me.“
“Now, I am trying with the support of everyone, but the thing is the pain does not heal. How would you cope if you lost everything? Recently, I just buried a family member. Months ago, it was someone from my family. This all happened after my house was set alight.“
“So it’s not easy at all. But I am just trying my best to be strong and hoping that one day everything will be fine, and the pain will become better. That is part of life.”
RAMAGALELA SEARCHING FOR A NEW HOME
The former Polokwane City and Black Leopards striker’s career has taken a dive lately due to long-term injuries.
However, the 34-year-old target man has not given up yet, as he is now looking for a club to continue his soccer playing career.
“I am home now, I am relaxing, while keeping myself fit. If any team comes looking for my services, I would not mind joining that particular team,” he added.
“I love the game. It’s not always about money, but how I enjoy the game. So I still want to play this beautiful game until I sense that it’s enough.”
