Cape Town - Former
Mamelodi Sundowns star and current Polokwane City striker Rodney
Ramagalela has said his spell with the Brazilians was a painful one, as
it hurt him not to be playing.
The 28-year-old spent three seasons at Chloorkop from 2013 until 2016
although he made just a handful of appearances for the team during this
time. In the last year of his deal at Chloorkop, he was also loaned out
to Golden Arrows.
As such, Ramagalela, who is now a rejuvenated force with Rise and
Shine after hitting 15 league goals so far in the club's colours, told Soccer Laduma being left out was distressing.
The Limpopo-born star said, "I think every time the team took me
back, it made me hope that I would be able to get a chance to play.
There were a few times where I'd start training with the team and then
"That meant I had to start all over again. I used to be out for
almost two months, so yes, it was a bit tough for me because I had to
re-adjust. I won’t lie, it did hurt at times, but I knew that I had to
fight and just hope that everything turns out well for me."
Ramagalela has started the current campaign in fine form and leads the scoring charts with six goals so far this season having come back to haunt his former side when scoring both goals in a 2-1 win in August.
