‘I BE­LIEVED HE WOULD MAKE IT’

Kick Off - - FEATURE -

For­mer Real Rovers, Ria Stars, Kaizer Chiefs and Dy­namos striker Syd­ney Moshikaro coached Keletso Makgalwa at Dy­nasty FC, a Cas­tle League from SAFA Water­berg re­gion. “I coached him for a year after he was brought in straight to the first team at the age of 15 be­cause we could see that he is tal­ented,” Moshikaro.

“It is un­usual for a 15-year-old, but I liked him and he was a spe­cial tal­ent.

As a young boy he was very good, be it the skill, pace, and close con­trol un­der pres­sure. He was al­ways like that.

“I have a feel­ing of pride about how far he has gone and even be­fore he went to Sun­downs I was al­ways try­ing to take him to other teams. I re­mem­ber send­ing him to a team in Seshego which was owned by Ria’s [Led­waba] son Harry and named Great North. They played in the ABC Mot­sepe League. “The day he went there I met him in town and gave him money to go and trial in Seshego but un­for­tu­nately he came back with­out be­ing signed. I al­ways be­lieved that he will make it,” says Moshikaro.
