No personal vengeance for Rama

Cape Town - Golden Arrows striker Rodney Ramagalela insists he has no resentment towards parent club Mamelodi Sundowns, despite a season of bench-warming being followed up by a loan move away.

The Limpopo-born forward is set to face Sundowns in the Absa Premiership at the Chatsworth Stadium on Saturday, having joined Abafana Bes'thende on a temporary deal for the 2015/16 campaign.

And, Ramagalela said he is ready to heed the call from Arrows coach Serame Letsoaka to do battle against the Brazilians this weekend.

"There is nothing personal, I will treat the game like any other. As a footballer you must be professional," Ramagalela told Soccer Laduma.

"You mustn't take things personally. You don't want to show people what you are made of because they know what you are made of. It's just that I didn't get a chance to play.

"The coach here (Arrows) is giving me a chance to play. I'll just play the way I normally play and forget about everything else.

"Guys like Musa Nyatama and the others played against them when they were on loan at other clubs. The coach (Letsoaka) can select me for the game. There is no problem."
