Likuena and Matlama striker Motebang Sera says rumours linking him to Vodacom Premier League champions Bantu are not true and he remains contracted to the country’s most successful club.
A Matšo Matebele are in the market for players ahead of a busy schedule that includes participating in the African Champions’ League.
The Mafeteng outfit have reportedly acquired the services of Tsietsi Motšeare who had an outstanding 2016/17 season for Sky Battalion.
However, Sera told this publication ahead of Likuena’s trip to Comoros for the African Nations Championship (CHAN) qualifier on Sunday that rumours linking him to Bantu were not true.
“I am still contracted to Matlama and I believe I will be playing for the team in the new season,” Sera said.
“There is nothing on the table as far as I know but if an offer comes I will sit down with the club and discuss it.”
The lanky striker said he was working hard to impress international scouts as he would love to play in bigger leagues outside the country.
“As a player, you have that dream to play in bigger leagues and I always work hard to impress in every match I play,” the lanky striker stated.
“I was hoping that something like that will work out at the COSAFA Cup because it gives us good exposure to show what we can do especially to South African teams.
“But I will not be discouraged and I will continue to work hard to improve my game,” he said.
The 2015/16 Vodacom Premier League Top Goal Scorer also said he was also working hard to consolidate his place in the Likuena starting XI having been used as an impact player since breaking into the team in 2015.
“I will keep working hard and playing according to the coach’s instructions.
“As a player you work hard to be first choice and I now have the confidence and experience to be the main man in attack.
“This year’s COSAFA Cup was my second and I have gained valuable experience in the two years.”
Sera said he dreamt of winning trophies and hoped that Matlama would overcome their struggles to compete for honours.
“It was not a good season for us and we have to pick up the pieces.
“It is time we won trophies especially the league title if we are to reclaim our place among the best in the country,” he said.
