The former Gaborone United (GU) player Mpho Kgaswane is settling well at his club – Baroka FC in South Africa. The 22-year-old stunner raved about his new club, saying they welcomed him with open arms. He started training with the team on January 19. He has already scored a goal for the club though he was brought in in the last 10 minutes in a recent tournament. “It was not easy because it was not even a week that I have been training with them. I am still trying to understand how they play but so far so good,” he said. He said he is amazed and grateful for the turn his career has taken since he just emerged from a bad head injury. “The injury on my head was bad. Being able to play like this makes me happy because I am back to the game and I will prove that I can do this for my new team,” he said.
Kgaswane said they have also had a friendly where he played more minutes. He said he is ready for his first official game with his new team and he is very excited about it. Kgaswane said that there is a huge difference between football in Botswana and the one in South Africa because there he enjoys great facilities and welfare that he believes will enable him to be the very best he can be. “My goal is not even to stay a long time in South Africa. I am just here passing and even a year will be too much,” he said. Kgaswane’s aim now is to play in a league that is even better than the one in South Africa because he believes with hard work he has all that it takes to achieve all that.
