- Nonhle Jali has dismissed the rumours that her husband has a substance abuse problem
- She claims that this is all a smear campaign that is designed to ruin their marriage
- While she is denying the allegations now, previously she reached out to Andile’s managers to ask for assistance with his behaviour
In the past few months rumours have been swirling around Sundowns midfielder Andile Jali that claim that the soccer star has been abusing alcohol. However, his wife, Nonhle has dismissed all of the allegations.
Andile has only recently joined the Sundowns and the reports about his drinking habits have made the transition very difficult.
The midfielder has failed numerous breathalyser tests at the club’s headquarters, despite of all this, Nonhle is standing by her man and is fighting against the claims.
Briefly.co.za learned that the soccer player’s wife issued a statement to clear the air by saying that the reports are nothing more than a smear campaign and her husband has settled in well with the club.
She goes on to say that Andile is a responsible father to their kids and that their marriage is stronger than ever.
However, Sunday World also reports that Nonhle reached out to the management team at the Sundowns’ Headquarters to ask for their assistance with getting Andile back on track.
Nonhle believes that all of these rumours are meant to drive them apart because people don’t want to see a young black couple’s marriage succeed.
But according to the Sowetan, Andile was arrested on Monday for allegedly assaulting Nonhle and damaging her car.
The soccer star spent the night behind bars and he will also be facing charges for the damaging his wife’s property and will be appearing in court on Tuesday.
Andile’s management team arrived at the police station that evening to bail him out, however the police refused to let him out of their custody due to the severity of the charges.
Nonhle’s car was badly damaged by her hubby’s actions, but thankfully she walked away with only minor injuries.
