PSL goalkeeper Siya Mbatha has reacted furiously to rumours hat he has quit football to become a male prostitute, after some websites in Mzansi claimed that he was now raking it in as a R3 000-per-night male prostitute. However, it seems he is a victim of ‘mistaken identity’.
Who is Siya Mbatha? Well, he’s NOT a male prostitute…
The 33-year-old shot-stopper, who moved to Golden Arrows from AmaZulu last year, now says that has life has been flipped upside down by the false statements – and he is worried about the impact this idle gossip will have on his children.
The now-debunked reports stated that Siya Mbatha would guarantee his clients (male OR female) a strip-show, a full-body massage, and ‘three hours of good sex’ – charging thousands each time for the performance. Alas, this is categorically not the case.
There is another high-profile footballer by the name of Siya Mbatha, who is five years younger than the PSL ‘keeper. Suggestions that the ‘junior’ Mbatha also played for AmaZulu have been questioned, with the 28-year-old allegedly never progressing past his time with Durban Warriors.

The whole episode has been branded disturbing by the current pro, and he’s looking to put distance between himself and this sordid story. Speaking to Kick Off this week, he slammed the publications who are trying to ‘score sales and clicks’ by printing these wild claims.
“It is rather disturbing that my name has been used in such a way by people seeking whatever relevance and attention they are aiming for. he person that they wrote about was never ever even once on the books of the AmaZulu first-team.”
“We honestly can’t be going to such extremes just for the sake of trying to score sales or clicks at the expense of people’s careers. This is disappointing, and we cannot live like that. Now I must deal with DMs of people asking me for things that cannot be printed.”Siya Mbatha
