Attacker Mothobi Mvala says he has grown as a player this season alongside some experienced heads at Highlands Park.
The 25-year-old was excellent for the Premier Soccer League side last
term, winning the club's Footballer of the Season award ahead of a
call-up to Bafana.
He struggled for consistency earlier on in the 2019/20 PSL campaign,
but saw a measured improvement alongside the likes of Musa Nyatama and
Reneilwe Letsholonyane in recent months.
Speaking to IOL Sport, Mvala explained: "In the beginning I don't
think that I started well. But with the help of the coach and senior
players, I’ve managed to get my momentum back. There were games where I
played well and games where I didn’t. I lacked consistency.
"In the second round, I’ve tried my best to help the team so that
they can get points. So, all in all, I am happy with my progress. The
way the coach spoke to me together with the senior players was helpful
for my progress. It was also helpful to do extra training."
He added: "Their (Nyatama and Letsholonyane) arrival has really
helped us as a team. They’ve allowed us to play with more confidence as a
team. Yeye (Letsholonyane) played in the World Cup in 2010 and he won
trophies with Chiefs. Those are the guys that we grew up watching."
