Da Gama: Rama-G doesn't smoke or drink

Cape Town - Highlands Park coach Owen da Gama says that striker Rodney Ramagalela leads a healthy lifestyle and he is not concerned about his lack of game-time.

Ramagalela signed a pre-contract with the Lions of the North to join the club at the end of the 2018/19 season from Polokwane City.

However, City appear to not be pleased about losing their star forward and have since frozen him out of the squad.

It seems likely he will play no further matches this campaign and he has been training on his own for the past two weeks.

Nonetheless, da Gama takes the view that 'Rama-G' will not abuse his body with alcohol and other intoxicants during the next six months.

He said: "Rama G is a very good player, he doesn't smoke and drink, a very dedicated and professional striker, I've worked with him in Venda and I believe he will join us in good shape.

"Unfortunately we have teams that believe in destroying players because he signed a pre-contract with another club, which is not good at all.

"We hope they will sort out those issues and play him and if they don't, I believe in Ramagalela, he will be fit."
