NFD Star: They’ve Been There!
Posted: 23 April 2021
The rigours of professional football can be damning and mentally challenging for most footballers at the top level; from the DSTV Premiership, the GladAfrica Championship and to some extend, to academy level.
GladAfrica Championship star, Abednego Mosiathlaga, who suffered an injury at the start of the campaign and couldn’t follow-up on his sublime form from last season, exclusively tells The Beautiful Game who his support structure has been during the most difficult time this term, saying;
“I think since the beginning of my career, my parents have always been my number one support structure. So I think they have always played an important role in the good and bad times.
“So I think with them (referring to his parents); I always communicate with them, they know almost everything about me; my career, my life, and their my pillar of strength.
“This side at (Cape Town) Spurs, we have a chaplain, there is a guy named Bruce, he is always there for the players; on the field or off the field issues, you know he is a guy you can honestly rely on and talk about everything. He is there to care for us, I think he has played an important role for me to stay strong and remain positive in what I was going through,” concluded the star.
Mosiathlaga, produced by one of the best football academies in the land, the Transnet School of Excellence and later played for Bidvest Wits, is confident he can help Cape Town Spurs finish strongly with the remaining games of the 2020/2021 season.
