Daniel Cardoso seems refueled ahead of the new season following his break-up with Kaizer Chiefs who opted against extending a contract with him. The seasoned defender found a new home at Sekhukhune United and seems happy with the new life he’s living in Limpopo.
Cardoso was one of the top signings that were brought in by Babina Noko who seem to mean business in competing against the big fishes of the local game. Now, the 33-year-old has been preparing for the new season with his new club and has now received brand new boots from his partner Adidas South Africa. The boots are called Adidas Predator, he took to Instagram to thank the manufacturer.
“New season-let’s get going @adidasfootball fully charged,” Cardoso wrote on Instagram. Please click the Instagram post to see the picture.
Other big signings Sekhukhune made include Linda Mntambo whom they bought from Pirates while Tshegofatso Mabasa will be spending this season with them on loan from the same club.
MABASA ON WHAT IRRITATED HIM AT PIRATES
Orlando Pirates on-loan striker Tshegofatso Mabasa has uncovered what made him angry at Buccaneers before he joined Sekhukhune United last month. According to Soccer Laduma, ex-Bloemfontein Celtic striker refuses to admit the idea that he failed at Pirates and is unhappy with how things turned out last season.
Mabasa says one thing that annoyed him during his stay at the Soweto giants was the limited game time, particularly last season.
“I still thought I’ve got plenty of years to go at the club and that I still had a lot to give, given the chance to. I’m happy with my contribution during the first season and obviously disappointed with how last season panned out,” Mabasa told Soccer Laduma in the latest edition.
“The lack of opportunities to play last season… that’s pretty much the only thing I can say is bugging me from my time at Pirates. I wouldn’t sup up my time at Pirates as a failure, not at all. Personally, perhaps a bit disappointed with how it turned out, but I wouldn’t say I let myself down in any way.
“I did the best that I could given everything that was happening around me and the team. I honestly tried my best, and that’s what I’ve always strived to do for whichever team I’ve turned out for.”
In his stint with the Sea Robbers since 2019, Mabasa found the back of the net on 18 occasions in 65 appearances. Not so bad.
