The Urban Warriors' youth prospects traditionally garner
attention at the end of the season after being given a chance to prove
themselves at the Cape side, and this term has been no different.
Mobara is one of several talented youngsters to have impressed
again for Ajax this season, but is adamant he has no intention of leaving the
Cape for a Premiership rival.
"I am only interested in going to Europe. I am not
looking at Joburg teams. Europe is a fantastic place to learn and start your
career," he told The Sowetan.
"While I am in South Africa, I will play for Ajax.
There are so many things to achieve for this team. We believe we can become
stronger, especially if we keep this squad.
"This season the coach really changed us. He is more
than a coach. He is a friend and he does not have favourites. He is fair and I
respect him for that."
The defender admitted he was heart-broken after the club's
devastating loss on penalties to Mamelodi Sundowns in the Nedbank Cup final.
"My mother cried after I missed the penalty to win the
game. For me to hear that my mother cried hurts me," he added.
"Since I started playing football my mother has never
missed a game. We really wanted to win the cup. But it was a good experience,
even though we lost."
