The 25-year-old goal poacher came off the bench to score the winning goal as Celtic clinched a 2-1 victory over SuperSport United for his second goal since the start of the 2020/2021 DSTV Premier League.
Sera hit the ground running in his first year in South Africa including scoring the much-publicised brace against Soweto giants-Kaizer Chiefs and looks to have his groove back again this season after a slow start to the 2020/2021 campaign
“I think the way Sera has been performing since making the move to Celtic is prove that we have talent as a country and the standard of football is also on the rise,” Mafoso said.
“I suspect that for years our football and players were not getting the respect and recognition we deserve from the big leagues on the continent. Maybe this could do with the fact that we do not have as many Basotho coaches working in South Africa like other countries.”
Former Likuena coach, Lehlohonolo Seema now the interim co-coach at Black Leopards played a big part in luring Sera to South Africa during his time at Phunya Sele Sele.
Seema also facilitated the moves of the likes of former Bantu duo of Tsietsi Khooa and Maloisane Ramasimong during his time in charge of Chippa while the move for Bokang Sello failed to materialise due to issues related to foreign quota at the club.
