Ajax Cape Town attacker Abednigo Mosiatlhaga says he wants to remain at Urban Warriors, despite attracting attention from PSL teams.
Mosiatlhaga who is the GladAfrica Championship top scorer with 16 goals, says he is hoping to help his team to gain promotion to top-flight league.
“It’s matter of self-belief, because regardless of how many people believe in you, if you don’t believe in yourself, you won’t able to do what you are capable of doing,” Mosiatlhaga told Goal.com.
“When I won it with Stellenbosch, I thought to myself that it’s time now for me to go play in the Premier League.
“But things never worked out. Obviously, I got disappointed because never in my mind did I think I’ll be playing in the NFD [GladAfrica Championship] again.
“There was no transfer agreement between the two clubs, Bidvest Wits and Stellenbosch, and I think there was no space for me as they had enough players in my position. They [Stellenbosch] also made it clear that I was not in the coach’s plans,” he added.
“Fortunately, by God’s grace, Ajax came calling and then I had to come back to this league with Ajax.
“I had to realign my mind and told myself that what I thought would happen didn’t happen and in life sometimes we don’t get what we want and think we deserve.
“So, I had to tell myself that I won this league and it’s history, there’s a new campaign and a new season ahead and I just have to do what I did previously with a bit more effort and more optimism.
“Ajax is a good club with a rich history and I knew they are a club that wants to get straight back to the Premier Division. So, I knew if I had to decide, it would be a team that will surely compete to go back to the Premier Division, and I couldn’t say no to Ajax,” he stated.
