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 Premiership.

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 website.

"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."
