Kgaogelo Sekgota has revealed he returned to South Africa
from Portugal for more game time and to be closer to home.
The 22-year-old winger, who joined Primeira Liga side
Vitoria Setubal from Lithuanian team FC Stumbras in 2019, is currently on loan
with Bidvest Wits until the end of the season.
Speaking to the Sowetan, the young player said: "I was
doing well in Portugal, but I thought I needed more minutes... more game time.
And my mom wasn't well, I decided that it was a good decision to be closer to
her while I am also getting game time, so I joined Wits. I always put my mom
"My mom is a single parent. I have been with her alone
the whole life. She's done a lot for me and I am happy she's fine now."
Reflecting on the current situation in South Africa, with
the Premier Soccer League suspended as a result of the coronavirus, Sekgota
added: "I think it would be fair for everyone for the season to be
finished, at least without fans at the stadium.
"We were a game behind them (Chiefs) and two of our
last nine games were against them, so I believe he can still win the league if
it happens that it resumes."
Sekgota also said that he has always wanted to play in the
South African top-flight.
"I have always wanted to play in the PSL, growing up my
dream was to play in the PSL before going to Europe. It happened that I started
in Europe instead, so coming to the PSL was like realising my childhood dream.
"It doesn't matter if I remain at Wits or I return to
Portugal, I just want to be where I will play regularly."
