Matlakala ready to show them dust
Platinum Stars newly acquired striker Maboke Matlakala is oozing confidence ahead of the new season.
Matlakala, who joined Dikwena from Baroka FC, wants to give his best to help Dikwena fly to greater heights.
“I want to score more goals than I did last season. For the team, I want to play a part in our success and make sure that we do well to get a spot in the top four on the log standings and win a trophy for our fans.
Matlakala, who hails from Ga-Mamabolo near Mankweng in Limpopo, has been settling in well at Dikwena. Matlakala is adapting to new methods of training under the watchful eye of coach Peter Butler.
“From the first day everyone has been happy to have me here and they have been helpful. It’s a different setup from where I am come from. So far I am happy here and I am honoured to be a part of Platinum Stars. They are a good team, they have been doing fairly well in the league and I am looking forward to helping the team achieve our goals for future,” said Matlakala.
“There are a few things that I have never done before and I am doing them here. I see this as a great opportunity for me because before it was all about scoring goals and just being that player upfront. Now I am learning to play around outside the box and working well with the team.”
Matlakala knows that it won’t be easy to own a place in the starting lineup. He will be competing with four other strikers. However he is willing to fight for a place in Butler’s team.
“I am ready. I want to grow and I see this as a new challenge. It you look at the players that I will be competing with for a place in the team, it’s not going to be easy for me but that are what will push me and make me to give my best all the time,” said the 28-year-old marksman.
