Mosiatlhaga: Ajax helping to achieve PSL dream
Ajax Cape Town winger Abednigo Mosiatlhaga hopes to get the chance of playing in the Premier Soccer League after missing out with Stellenbosch FC.
The 25-year-old spent last season at Stellies on loan from Bidvest Wits but was released at the end of their promotion campaign.
This term, the in-form Urban Warrior has scored 16 goals in 22 GladAfrica Championship games to head into the enforced break as the league's top goal-scorer.
Mosiatlhaga told Goal: "It's a matter of self-belief, because regardless of how many people believe in you, if you don't believe in yourself, you won't be able to do what you are capable of doing.
"When I won it [Glad Africa Championship] with Stellenbosch, I thought to myself that it's time now for me to go play in the Premier League.
"But things never worked out. Obviously, I got disappointed because never in my mind did, I think I’ll be playing in the NFD [Glad Africa Championship] again.
"There was no transfer agreement between the two clubs [Bidvest Wits and Stellenbosch], and I think there was no space for me as they had enough players in my position. They [Stellenbosch] also made it clear that I was not in the coaches plans.
"Fortunately, by God's grace, Ajax came calling, and then I had to come back to this league with Ajax."
He added: "Ajax is a good club with a rich history and I knew they are a club that wants to get straight back to the Premier Division. so, I knew if I had to decide, it would be a team that will surely compete to go back to the premier division, and I couldn't say no to Ajax."
