Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs winger George Lebese says he is doing everything possible to ensure he’s in good form throughout the season.
Lebese has been one of Amakhosi’s standout performers in the last few years; a regular goal-scorer and provider.
However, the 27-year-old has been dealing with injury setbacks, which have curtailed his influence on the team to a degree.
This season has seen him start brightly, though, having already netted two goals in the league, and the Mamelodi-born attacker says he is determined to make as much of a contribution as possible.
"It's every players wish to be consistent. I'm looking to be consistent. Most important is that the team is winning, then I'm happy but obviously I would to contribute," he said.
His coach, Steve Komphela, says it's only natural for a player's momentum to be curbed after spending time on the sidelines.
"I think one of the things George did not mention is that he had been doing very well last season up until he unfortunately got injured," said the Chiefs mentor.
"That's the worst nightmare for any player, especially one that is on form. If you get injured, it makes it difficult to get into the team, to get that rhythm.
"I hope he stays injury free because he is one hell of a player. He is focused, and we know in George at any given time, he can get goals."
Lebese explained that he was taking precautionary measures to ensure he stays at the top of his game.
"I'm working very hard with the fitness coach to strengthen every part of my body that I had an issue with last season to try avoid injuries as much as possible, to make sure they don't come back again and slow down my momentum like last season," he explained.
