4. Jabu ‘Pule’ Mahlangu
The former SuperSport United man came from some tragic upbringings to defy the odds and become a highly talented footballer. However, he could never quite escape his past and he splurged his money on alcohol and an exceptionally dramatic party lifestyle.
Jabu once confirmed that footballers were never taught the importance of how to look after their finances and possessions, and that most local players were forced to learn the hard way.
