Chiefs slayer Lepasa looking for better with Bucs

Orlando Pirates loanee Zakhele Lepasa believes he can improve upon his success achieved with TS Galaxy by improving his game with the Sea Robbers.

Lepasa was in some inspired form throughout the Nedbank Cup as he banged home four goals in four matches in the competition, including the winner from the penalty spot in the final against a hapless Kaizer Chiefs.

In addition, the 22-year-old starlet fired home five league goals in 11 league appearances to help Galaxy to a respectable finish in the National First Division.

The player won the Nedbank Cup Player of the Tournament for his efforts and has since been recalled from loan by Pirates ahead of the 2019/20 campaign.

The Soweto-born forward is a man on the rise as he was also recently included in the Bafana Bafana squad for the upcoming COSAFA Cup quarterfinal against Botswana on 2 June.

He told Bucs' official website: "I am someone who doesn't believe in mistakes. I think everything that happens to us, does so for a reason. The key is whether someone chooses to ignore what has happened or to learn from it. For me, it's the latter."

Following a failed initial spell on loan at Stellenbosch, his subsequent switch to join Dan Malesela's team was a huge success.

He concluded: "My time at Stellenbosch, albeit limited was not a waste. I thank the team for giving me an opportunity but at the end of the day it just didn't work out. This is football. The two loan moves have opened up my eyes as to what to expect and as a student of the game I always look to better myself."
