Gate missing for three weeksS’busiso Nkosi (26), the Bulls and Springboks winger (winner of the 2019 World Cup), finally reappeared, Monday, at his father’s home. In the process, he confided in the media South Africa News 24 and explained that he had disappeared, because he was struggling to bear the pressure linked to his professional career.
“ It developed a few years agoexplained Nkosi. But I was trying to stay calm […] I just needed time. I curled up in a ball, with my father by my side. He managed my mental state on a daily basis. […] It was a battle. I’ve gotten to a point where I have to prioritize the person over the rugby player. […] I feel much better. There’s obviously a lot to say that I can’t say out loud, but my condition is improving. »
He wants to take a break from his career
S’busiso Nkosi had found himself in difficulty this season, after being ousted from the Bulls, who were then in Europe to play matches in the United Rugby Championship. He had been criticized for missing a meeting with the team. Last year, Nkosi missed a test match against Wales, during the autumn tour, because he was late in renewing his passport, after being pressed by the Springboks to quickly take this step.
“ I am not someone special, different or uniqueadded Nkosi […] Maybe a little effort should be put into how guys deal with their emotions, in good times and bad. Because it’s always a bit like a roller coaster. The South African winger has also declared that he would like to take a break from his career. The leaders of the Bulls announced on Tuesday that they would support their player.
