Nteo: Mabasa’s best yet to come


Bloemfontein Celtic reserve team coach Abram Nteo believes football fans are yet to see the best from Orlando Pirates striker Tshegofatso Mabasa.

Mabasa was spotted by then Celtic head coach Ernst Middendorp during the Engen Knockout Challenge playing for Grey College in 2014.

Nteo worked with Mabasa in the Multichoice Diski Challenge (MDC) team before his promotion to the senior team.

His form for Siwelele in 2018/19 caught the attention of many and was snatched by Orlando Pirates.

The 23-year-old has started his life at the Bacaneers with a bang scoring 4 goals in the 5 Absa Premiership games he’s played.

“When we got him from Grey College I told coach (Ernst Middendorp) that this boy will score goals,” Nteo recalled.

He was doing well when he was with us at MDC, he continued when he got promoted to the first team and look what he is doing now at Orlando Pirates” said Nteo.

“I don’t think people have seen the best from him yet. I know him very well when he gets goals and the confidence, he is still going to score more goals. He is a quality player”

Mabasa was the top goal scorer during the 2016/17 Multichoice Diski Challenge with 12 goals.
