Moralo Being Patient At SuperSport
SuperSport United youngster Gape Moralo has given his assessment of his 2020/21 season, as he reflected back on a difficult and unusual season.
The 21-year-spent most of the season playing Diski Challenge football, that is when football was not suspended, and he says this past year was challenging as they had prioritise health because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Moralo featured just once for the SuperSport first team in the DStv Premiership this season, but says he needs to remain patient, as his opportunity will come.
“The previous season as opposed to this past season were different because of Covid-19,” Moralo told the SuperSport website.
“We really had to adjust to a lot of things compared to the previous season. This past season we had to prioritize and our health will always come first. We did find the balance but it was challenging at times. From time to time we had to undergo some tests and this would result in the team missing some of the players because of COVID-19.
“As for myself, I did feature for the Diski Challenge side and I think few of the reasons why we didn’t do so well this past season is that we had a relatively new team and it was also made up of young players.
“But I think the performances were good and in most cases they just couldn’t get a good result. But I’m confident they’ll do well in the coming season. I think the squad has gained a little bit of experience, especially the young players.
“Also, I think I need to be a little bit patient. Not everything is going to happen at one go. So yes, patience is what I’m having going into the new season. And I’m confident my time will come. I just need to keep on working hard, stay dedicated, discipline and persevere.
“The technical team told me to keep on working hard and stay disciplined. I’ve been conducting myself very well and they told me it’s going to work for me very well in the future.
“I think in the first place it would be my ideal finish but if not I think if we reached a position on the log table that’s going to allow us to play CAF competitions that was going to be good for the team and us youngster because I think we’ll maybe get a chance to play more.
“Our fitness trainer has given us programme that starts immediately during the off-season break just to keep fit and stay in shape. Nothing hectic though and I really think everyone is following their programme at home while we still resting. It’s basically active rest. “
