Johannesburg – Kgaogelo Sekgota has revealed that he returned to South Africa from Portugal for more game time and to be closer to home.
The 22-year-old, who joined Primeria Liga side with Vitoria Setubal from Lithuanian team FC Stumbras in 2019, is currently on loan with Bidvest Wits until the end of the season.
“I was doing well in Portugal, but I thought I needed more minutes… more game time. And my mom wasn’t well, I decided that it was a good decision to be closer to her while I am also getting game time, so I joined Wits. I always put my mom first.
“My mom is a single parent. I have been with her alone the whole life. She’s done a lot for me and I am happy she’s fine now.”
Reflecting on the current time in the country, with the PSL suspended because of the coronavirus pandemic, Sekgota said: “I think it would be fair for everyone for the season to be finished, at least without fans at the stadium.
“We were a game behind them (Chiefs) and two of our last nine games were against them, so I believe we can still win the league if it happens that it resumes.”
Sekgota added that he’s always wanted to play in the South African top-flight.
“It doesn’t matter if I remain at Wits or I return to Portugal, I just want to be where I will play regularly.”
