LIKUENA star midfielder, Tshwarelo Bereng has called on his compatriots Motebang Sera and Tumelo Khutlang not to despair following a frustrating start to the 2021/2022 season in South Africa.

The two, who were impressive for the national squad during the July COSAFA Cup in Port Elizabeth, South Africa have not played even a single match at Royal AM and Swallows FC respectively, in the DSTV Premiership.

Khutlang made the big move to Moroka Swallows in the off-season after parting ways with the relegated Black Leopards but has not even made the bench since his new campaign started.

Sera on the other hand has managed to make the match day squad for three matches in a row but was an unused substitute.  However, the Likuena top goal-scorer with six goals in the history of the COSAFA Cup did not make the match squad for his club in the last three matches against TS Galaxy, Maritzburg United and Marumo Gallants.

Bereng himself is still in search of a club and knows the frustration quite well having been in and out of clubs over the last few years.

“Patience and prayer always give out the best results. Football here in SA is full of politics,” the Likuena midfielder said.

“In life you always see the best of situations even when they seem dark. That helps you to always be true to yourself and never doubt your abilities as a player.

“Football is not fair, we just have to make sure we do not lose ourselves,” he added.

Their countryman, Tumelo Makha playing in the Glad-Africa Championship for TTM has enjoyed better fortunes featuring in the last four games for his club since making the move to South Africa.

The talented midfielder admitted that it has not been an easy journey since joining TTM, but has embraced the challenge of playing away from home.

“I have been getting game time, but it has not been smooth sailing and I know that I have to work hard to succeed here,” the midfielder stated.

“Playing professional football comes with a lot of challenges and one must be prepared to fight on and off the field,” he said.
