Usuthu are currently fighting to secure their future in the
South African top flight and Liphoko wants to do all he can to ensure that the
objective is realised.
Goals have been few and far between for AmaZulu during this
campaign and Liphoko wants to try and contribute more in this sphere if he can.
The 19-year-old has already breached opposition defences
twice during the current league campaign and he wants to try and build on that
"With all the experience that I have gathered from the
camp, I am looking forward to implementing everything and bring positive change
to the club," said Liphoko.
"I know that the senior players and the coach have
always been supportive and I am hoping that the relationships will continue."
However, there is a complication for Liphoko, who sustained
an injury during the Commonwealth Cup in Russia and the expectation is that he
will undergo further assessments with the AmaZulu medical team this week.
The midfielder understands that it is an obstacle and he is
ready to try and overcome it.
"I am a bit disappointed with the injury and I will
only be able to know tomorrow how serious it is when I meet with the AmaZulu
medical staff," added Liphoko.
