Parker Credits Ramovic And Staff For Mojela & Co Rise

Bernard Parker feels Lehlogonolo Mojela will be a great asset to Stellenbosch FC, and credited Sead Ramovic and his technical team for their exceptional work.

Mojela, 27, is set for a lucrative switch to the Steve Barker’s side who are bolstering their squad for the 2024/25 season in their debut foray into Africa.

Having finished third in the league, they are set for the CAF Confederation Cup, and the versatile Mojela was viewed as a priority target due to his ability to play across the front three.

After five years in the second-tier, Galaxy snapped up Mojela from Casric Stars and under Ramovic, he developed into one of the most exciting talents in the league.

But it was his pace, pressing, and relentless work-rate that made heads turn, as the diminutive attacker lead with aplomb.

“You know what the coach has done, the staff, they have done a tremendous job in how they have got the best out of the players and making them reach their full potential,” Parker told iDiski Times.

“Mojela, Puso [Dithejane], [Thatho] Khiba, [Sphiwe] Mahlangu and the other [MacBeth] Mahlangu as well. Fiacre [Ntwari] came here, he was fumbling, now he’s so confident and on another level, so big ups to the team and what they’ve been doing.

“And for Mojela, he has a big heart and a great attitude, and that’s what we want in football, a positive attitude, as a positive attitude gives positive energies, so I just hope he keeps that positive mental level when he goes on to his next club.”

Mojela scored seven goals in 34 games across all competitions last season.
