I had even forgotten about Orlando Pirates - says reject whose now shining

Since arriving in Mzansi in to turn out for Bloemfontein Celtic, Sera Motebang has always showed glimpses of being a top striker with his knack for scoring goals.

His exploits for Lesotho’s Matlama FC as well as for the national team are enough for the evidence. In an interview, he talks about how moving to the PSL was the realisation of a dream, the hiccups along the way notwithstanding.

The 26-year-old also discusses his current struggles at Royal AM, where he hasn’t been playing regularly this season. Motebang also has a special message for Celtic supporters, with whom he had a special bond during the two years he spent at the club whose name now only exists in memory.

When he signed with Celtic, he saw it as an opportunity to prove a point to Soweto giants Orlando Pirates that they made a mistake by not giving him a chance?

"Not necessarily to prove a point to Pirates… I just wanted a platform so that people could see who Sera Motebang is. For me, it was about showcasing my talent and not to prove a point to Pirates.

"At that stage, I had even forgotten about Pirates and had moved on from that. I just wanted people to see me scoring goals because I love scoring goals. There is nothing I love the most about football than scoring goals," he said.
