According to KickOff, Alexander said that is it was not for his father’s encouragement the move to Rise and Shine would of been a gloomy one.

“Many people say Cape Town players don’t do well ‘outside’. Then my father said to me, ‘Get rid of that mentality now before it manifests in your head’,” said the 25-year-old.

The move has seen the midfielder have one of his best seasons as a footballer and it has duly been noted by Bafana Bafana coach Shakes Mashaba after selecting the former Ajax Cape Town product for their match-ups against Swaziland and Nigeria.

“This is one of my best seasons, if not my best ever. The fans have welcomed me and I feel at home. After every home game the fans come and hug me. They shout my name and things are positive.

He added: “My dream from day one has always been to play overseas and lots of people will say I’m too old at 25, but this is my dream and I firmly believe that it is still possible. All I can think of is Europe.”
