Cape Town - Striker Moeketsi Sekola's representative
Ratshibvumo Mulovhedzi says the player moving to the National First Division
with Highlands Park was a positive switch for his career.
The forward joined the Highlands of the
North after spending the first-half of the season with Chippa United in the Absa
However, he swapped South Africa's top
flight to join the runaway NFD leaders in the second tier. Nonetheless, while
eyebrows were raised that the Bafana Bafana star dropped down a division,
Mulovhedzi said it was a good move.
"Some people thought we were mad when we
did a deal with Highlands Park for Moeketsi Sekola," he told Soccer Laduma
"We moved the player from Chippa United in
the PSL and to Highlands Park in the NFD, and some people didn’t understand
what we were doing.
"Highlands Park is a good team and the
player is happy there.
"The club is treating the player very well.
The player's signing-on fee has been paid, as agreed. His salary has been paid."
Mulovhedzi continued: “Highlands Park is
one of the well-organised teams and it's not surprising that they are returning
to the PSL.
"We were briefed about the team’s plans for
returning to the PSL and that’s why it wasn’t difficult for us to enter into a
deal with the club for Sekola."
