Baroka FC defender Bonginkosi Makume believes the enforced Premier Soccer League (PSL) temporary suspension came at a wrong time as they were starting to get back to their winning ways.
‘Bakgaga’ had won three of their last four matches in all competitions before the COVID-19 pandemic forced the League to be suspended until further notice.
The ‘Ga-Mphahlele’ side are embroiled in relegation battle alongside their Limpopo neighbours Black Leopards and Polokwane City as well as KwaZulu-Natal side AmaZulu.
“We really hope it will re-open soon so that we can get back to our winning ways so, I would like it to be very soon” Makume told FARPost.
“Yes it is going to kill our momentum because we were starting to win like two games in a row at home so that’s the momentum that it is going to kill but the mood in camp is still fine the boys are happy we are all enjoying training sessions and I think by the time the league gets reopened we will be on top of our game again,” he said.
Makume also talks about his comeback in the team following an 8 months injury layoff.
“It was very difficult for me because I had not played in 8 months so it has not been easy for me. I had to catch up with the rest of the team so I was happy that I managed to start my first match during the Nedbank Cup,” added the 24-year-old.
Makume joined Baroka from GladAfrica Championship side JDR Stars and has played over 25 matches so far.
