Junaid Hartley was reluctant to divulge details of his struggle to kick his drug addiction.
In an interview with John Robbie, the 36-year-old former star player wouldn't confirm whether he was ready to accept help and turn his life around.
Earlier this month, his father (Omar Hartley) pleaded to callers on-air to assist his son as he had hit rock bottom and was ready to come clean. In the interview he said: "He's battling, but by God's grace, he's trying and he definitely needs to be helped."
Former alcohol addict and ex-Bafana Bafana player, Jabu Mahlangu, offered to join Robbie and help Hartley in a new path.

The former footballer insisted that a conversation that happened last week with Robbie be aired first before speaking further about his problems.

No matter what I do and what people say I do, I still have my integrity that needs to be protected.— Junaid Hartley, former Ajax Cape Town midfielder
I'm not going to say I don't need any help or I don't want to help... It is in the public interest for them to hear what we spoke about last week.— Junaid Hartlet, former Ajax Cape Town midfielder
