Mosele disappointed by Olympic postponement


Baroka in-form midfielder Goodman Mosele was one of the 78 provisional players announced in the South Africa 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games squad to be held from 24 July-9 August.

The 20-year-year couldn’t hide his disappointment but maintains that nothing will stop him from being in the new squad that will be announced prior to next year’s games.

“Of course I am kind of disappointed because it would have been such a big opportunity for me to be chosen in the final squad and go represent my country,” he told FARPost.

“But nonetheless I am happy that I was recognized, it shows that there is something good that I am doing and people are watching, so coming to the Olympics being postponed.

“It is so sad for me but there’s nothing one can do so yeah I’ll just keep on working and see whether it will proceed next year,” he added.

Mosele has revived his career his career at ‘Bakgaga’ this season after having been dropped to the MultiChoice Diski Challenge by former coach Wedson Nyirenda at the beginning of the season.

The Klerksdorp-born player first came under the spotlight when he was given an opportunity to play regularly under SA football Legend Doctor Khumalo during the 2017/18 season.
