According to Chiefs’ Facebook page, Motaung has given the
Proteas a message of his support and advice as they look to claim glory in
"The journey you have just undertaken is more than a
game or tournament. It is not just about YOU and the Proteas. It’s about your country.
You are standing on the shoulders of more than fifty million of your fellow
South Africans. As such you are faced with THE MOMENT OF GLORY as the world is
watching," said Motaung.
“To be truly successful in this campaign you have to give
more than your best. Sometimes even that’s not good enough. It’s about getting
up every time and turning disappointment into determination, turning
shortcomings into stepping-stones. It’s all about GLORY and how bad you need it. Never forget what you came here
for. You came here to achieve the highest levels of GLORY, for your families, your
fans and for YOU. This is your MOMENT OF GLORY and let it be for the Proteas. GOD
bless you all and continue to INSPIRE GREATNESS."
