Golden Arrows coach Serame Letsoaka lauds ‘hard worker’ Gladwin Shitolo

Posted: 9 November 2015 Time: 12:59

Golden Arrows coach Serame Letsoaka says utility player Gladwin Shitolo has been a valuable addition to the team.

The 26-year-old has started all games for Abafana Bes’thende this season, but he was sent off in their last match against Kaizer Chiefs on November 3 when they lost 3-1 at FNB Stadium.

Letsoaka reveals he recommended Shitolo, who is on loan for the 2015/16 season from Orlando Pirates, to the club's management after they worked together at the national U-20 team.

“When it comes to Shitolo, you would remember that he was one of the players who went with us to the U-20 World Cup in 2009… He was a late entrant in the team. I had seen him before, but when I saw him playing in the World Cup he was a different player – he was a classy player and this is the player that I have always said that can we have a player who is excellent at centre-back, excellent as a right-back and excellent as a midfielder and that is the reason why we took him to the World Cup,” he says.

“And when I got the opportunity at Arrows I said this is one of the players that I really need. He hasn’t disappointed from day one; very humble, a Christian, down to earth, a hard worker and he’s really making a big contribution in the team,” Letsoaka adds.

The other Arrows players who have started all the club's games this season are Nkanyiso Cele, Mabhudi Khenyeza, Matome Mathiane and Nkanyiso Mngwengwe.
