TOP Likuena striker, Motebang Sera is looking forward to a new chapter at Royal Am, after the Durban-based outfit bought the status of Bloemfontein Celtic just before the start of the 2021/2022 South African Premier League.

Reports in the media had suggested that Sera’s future in the South African Premier League was uncertain after Celtic sold its status.

However, the 26-year-old forward has since confirmed that he is registered with his new team for the 2021/2022 season.

Sera is yet to feature for his new club since the new campaign having had to wait for his work permit that will allow him to be registered with the South African Premier League.

“I missed the opening match as I was waiting for my work permit, but it has since been sorted out and I’m now available for selection,” the Likuena marksman said.

“Of course, it is a new team and a new environment, but a lot has not changed, as it is still the same technical team we had at Celtic. It has not been that much of a struggle for me to settle in because the players are still the same squad.

“We have a few new faces that were already in the books of Royal Am, but the majority of the players were playing for Celtic in the last season,” he also said.

Sera, who became Likuena’s leading goal scorer in the history of the COSAFA Cup after netting a brace against Zambia in this year’s edition of the regional tournament has been playing at Celtic since 2019.

He registered seven goals from 20 appearances in all competitions in his first season in South Africa. In the previous campaign, he made 25 appearances in all competitions and scored two goals.

Sera and Tumelo Khutlang are currently the only two Likuena players plying their trade in the South African Premier League after the latter was recently signed by Swallows FC. Both are yet to play since the new campaign started.

Another Likuena player, who is based in South Africa and was also impressive at the recent COSAFA Cup, Tshwarelo Bereng is still in search of a new home since he was released by Marumo Gallants, having purchased the status of TTM, where the midfielder played his football last season.

Royals are winless from their opening two matches while Swallows have already registered a win and a draw.
