“Oh! What a player! What a great hu­man be­ing! Abednego was re­cruited from Mabopane Young Masters. He used to give us a dif­fi­cult time in mid­field when play­ing against them. When he signed with Ria Stars, he ended up play­ing as a de­fender be­cause it was dif­fi­cult to break my com­bi­na­tion with Tha­bang Lebese, Frank Makua and Sid­ney Moshikaro. The first time I saw Abednego off the field, I just saw a tsotsi, not a foot­baller, ha, ha, ha. The way he walks, you would think he’s go­ing to stab you with a knife. You would never hear him com­plain­ing – he was a true pro­fes­sional and a very good dis­ci­ple of foot­ball. The only prob­lem is he doesn’t know which foot he’s us­ing. I re­mem­ber one time he was go­ing to kick a penalty. He ran to­wards the ball and stopped be­fore kick­ing it – he was not sure whether to kick with the left or the right foot, as he was us­ing both feet equally. He was not a talk­a­tive per­son. Great soc­cer player and won­der­ful per­son.”
