The former Matlama marksman who banged in a total of 18 goals last season and helped his club win the league could make the long awaited debut when Celtic meet Baroka in Polokwane on August 24. Lesotho Football Association (LeFA) communications officer Mikia Kalati confirmed that Sera has obtained his international clearance which had been blocking the player from embarking on his new international career.
Kalati said after signing with Celtic, Sera had to apply for a police clearance which he said took a while to be ready before the South African Football Association (SAFA) applied for his international clearance from LeFA. Following all these processes, he said Sera received his clearance, adding he was now ready to play for his new club.
It is still not clear how much Phunya Sele-Sele as Celtic are affectionately known to their fans paid for the deadly Lesotho forward, but Kalati said only Sera’s former club would be in a better position to know.
