Likuena utility player-Thabo Seakhoa says he is enjoying his football again after almost two-years on the sidelines with a broken leg.
The 26-year-old, who plays for LCS in the Econet Premier League, made a return to the national team following the appointment of Thabo Senong, as the new national team coach and was impressive in the recent matches against Malawi and Zimbabwe respectively.
Seakhoa admitted that he struggled to get his groove back after a long spell on the sidelines, but is slowly getting back to his best.
“I’m enjoying my football again though I still feel that I’m not yet where I want to be. The coach is always encouraging me to play with confidence and enjoy my football,” Seakhoa said.
“I think the support that I have been getting from the Likuena technical team has made life very easy for me to believe in my abilities and perform well for the national team. It has not been easy to pick-up the pieces following a long spell on the sidelines due to injury, but I’m very happy that I have been given the opportunity to play for my country. It feels good to be part of the national team again.
The speedy LCS star stated that he is enjoying his new role in a 3-4-3 formation that has been used by Likuena coach in the games against Malawi and Zimbabwe.
“I never thought I would be able to get it right playing in a position that demands me to do a lot of defending throughout the game because I have always played as an attacking player. But the technical team and my teammates have been very supportive and that is why I have managed to adapt so quickly,” the 26-year-old stated.
“As for the recent game against Zimbabwe, it was painful that we got to the final round of the African Nations Championship (CHAN), but in the end lost on qualifying. All of us had a dream of playing in a big continental competition, but we have not lost hope of one day making it a reality,” he said.
