"I just want a new challenge in life and to grow as a player, and Stars is a good team when it comes to professionalism," Tema explains to

"You know the pre-season is tough and I've worked with coach Luc before. 

“Free State Stars is a good team and they welcomed me very well. The competition is high, so I will fight to get in the first eleven, and I know it's not gonna be easy but I will do my best. 

"You know last season I didn't play and I was training with the MultiChoice [Diski Challenge side]. 

"We are working hard every day and hard work pays hey. So if you are lazy you won't work with coach Luc."
