It’s always about the team, says Molangoane

Cape Town - Newly-signed Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Joseph Molangoane is ecstatic to have opened his account for the club and says that the success of the team comes before anything.

The former Orlando Pirates man was embroiled in a legal battle with former club Chippa United, which saw him being sidelined, and the winger who completed his move to Chiefs earlier this month, says he is happy to be back doing what he does best after a difficult period.

"I really missed it (when I was out)," he told the club's website.

"I had a really tough period this year and I went through some really difficult moments, but I am so happy to be over that and playing once again.

"I don’t know how to describe it, just being a part of Kaizer Chiefs is a great feeling and scoring was just a cherry on top," he added.

The 28-year-old netted in his side's 3-2 victory against Polokwane City - their first victory in seven consecutive league games and Molangoane is hopeful that Amakhosi can end the year with a victory as they travel to Durban to face Golden Arrows on Wednesday.

"It’s always about the team and I am doing it for the Khosi nation. For me to go in there and score I realised very quickly that it was not about me, but contributing towards the success of the team.

"The team as a whole came together in the second-half and that enabled us to win it."

"Going to Durban in the next match, it’s important that we start from where we finished and get more points before the Christmas break," he concluded.
