Orlando Pirates legend Edward Motale still believes that veteran defender Happy Jele is far from done as a footballer despite his recent challenges.

Jele has strggled for consistent game-time at the Buccaneers and it seemed his future was in limbo after the arrival of Thulani Hlatshwayo under coach Josef Zinnbauer.

Recently, the defender has managed to regain his place in the team.

Motale is positive that Jele is far from retiring, despite being written off by many fans.

"I think Happy Jele is not going anywhere, he is not done. It's just that when you reach over 30 in South African football, we think players are done," Motale told the media in KZN.

"Jele still has a lot to offer, giving him one year contact every season? I'm not sure how the club operates, because they have their rules, but I'm not sure about these one-year contracts."

The CAF Champions League-winning defender also feels social media is harming the current players and Jele has been a victim.

"He has done so well, even though sometimes as fans we destroy our players by criticising them for having one or two bad games. Social media has done lot of damage and I always tell them to refrain from social media."

"Stay away from that place, I warned them to forget about social media. Happy has always been open to talk to me, he always called for advice from the young age of 17. I know him well and he is very good player and I blessed him with Magents name," added the legend.
