Sekgota: We have to stay strong


Bidvest Wits are hard at work in preparation for the restart of the Premier Soccer League (PSL) at their training base in Johannesburg, Sturrock Park and winger Kgaogelo Sekgota like most players is itching to return to action.

With an ‘obvious desire’ to finish the 2019/20 campaign on the field of play, Sekgota says there is still a lot to play for.

“It is good to be back after a long time, football is something that we love and live for so this is a great feeling,” Sekgota said following a training session at Sturrock Park this week.

“We are in the Nedbank Cup semifinals [against Mamelodi Sundowns] and we still have a few league games left so there is still a lot to play for,” –  Sekgota. Picture: Bidvest Wits.
“It is all about the dedication that you have, your goals in life. You have to stay strong. Challenges come and go, you just need to be mentally strong and remain focused.

Sekgota joined Wits in January from Portuguese side Vitória Setúbal FC and he has only made five appearances in the league for ‘The Students’.

The purchase of South Africa’s oldest club, Wits by the owner of Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila (TTM) Masala Mulaudzi took everyone by surprise and with the sale approved by the PSL, Sekgota believes they will remain competitive for their last few games of the season.

“Obviously we are a big team with a good coach that has a lot of experience. We have a squad full of national team players so we will remain competitive and professional up until the end of the season,” he concluded.
