Cape Town - Free State Stars striker Thokozani Sekotlong has expressed gratitude to the Premiership club for giving him an opportunity to revive his career.

The University of Pretoria youth academy product found himself in the wilderness last season without a club.

The 25-year-old had been dropped by Cape Town All Stars after a less than impressive stint in the National First Division.

"Football hey, you never know where it's going to take you. Sometimes you need a little luck to get back from being nowhere, and I was lucky enough that Stars gave me an opportunity," Sekotlong told KickOff.

"I told myself I know I didn't deserve what happened, but this time I must take my opportunity and work harder. I was out of PSL for the whole of last season. It wasn't nice at all, six months without a team.

"I then joined Cape Town All Stars, but they also released me from my contract saying I wasn't delivering. But Stars then gave me a chance and since then I've only missed one match. I will forever be grateful and all I want to do is to work for Stars.

"I feel like I want more league goals. If I can get 10 in the league I'll be very happy... and the Telkom Cup would be a bonus."
