Chiefs signing aiming to end trophy drought


Latest Kaizer Chiefs addition Kgaogelo Sekgota has shared his personal ambitions since joining the club after introducing himself to the AmaKhosi in the Carling Black Label Cup.

Sekgota was introduced as a substitute in the second half and immediately showed flashes of brilliance.

His performance showed why former Portugal youth international Zequinha told this website that Sekgota is the best player he has ever played with in one-on-one situations, including those that were his teammates at FC Porto.

After scoring the decisive penalty in a tense Carling Black Label Cup shootout on Sunday, Sekgota has now set his sights on ending the cub's six-year trophy drought.

"It's a daily prayer for me to achieve trophies with the club and help to get victories for the supporters and for me as an individual," Sekgota told the club website.

"Obviously, I have to study my teammates, I have to respect the tactics of the coach and try to do my best for the club and for me as a player."

In joining Chiefs, Sekgota has already realised the magnitude of his transfer having previously featured for BidVest Wits and Swallows since returning from a stint in Lithuania and Portuguese club Vitoria Setubal.

"I have realised that Chiefs is one of the biggest teams in South Africa and Africa. The most important thing is hard work and dedication for the club to give them good results. To the fans, I would like to say there are more good things coming. 

"My family are excited for me. I have to adapt to the excitement and focus on the work. It is a huge achievement for me as a player. It is a big club, with good, experienced players around me and I am ready to work."
