Cape Town - Tumelo Letuka believes Free State Stars have the strength and quality to achieve more than their current mid-table position in the Premiership suggests.

The full-back signed for Ea Lla Koto during the off-season after a successful trial, and has not looked back since.

He admitted that despite Stars’ slow start to the season, he believes they are finally finding their rhythm.

“Soccer is all about combinations,” said Letuka to the club’s website.

“We had a new-look team and a new coach (Tom Saintfiet), so it took some time for us to understand what he wanted from us.

“We can achieve a little more (than mid-table) with the quality that we have in squad. We can certainly do more.”

Letuka is confident of getting a chance to prove his worth on the international stage with the short supply of left-back options in the Bafana set-up.

“I’m not really far off (getting a Bafana Bafana call-up). I just need to play a little bit more,” he continued.

“The team also has to show some progress and it will then be a matter of time before someone notices.”
