Mogorosi loving life in Bloem

Telkom Knockout 2012-2013 Player of the Tournament Joel Mogorosi has explained to KickOff.com why he was a hit rather than a miss in his first season in the Premier Soccer League.

The Botswana international arrived at Bloemfontein Celtic at the start of the season and hit the ground running by helping the team win the Telkom Knockout in December.Juluka reflects: "It is never easy for a foreign player to establish yourself in your first season. I settled in quickly because Celtic made me feel at home from day one, that's the reason I have managed to play well. Everyone was supporting me, so I had no worries and I was able to focus on my game," he says.

Mogorosi further makes special mention of Botswana's senior players based in South Africa; Mogogi Gabonamong, Dipsy Selolwane and Modiri Marumo. The 28-year-old feels the trio played a pivotal role in helping him adjust quicker to South African football."I found our big brothers here and they have really supported me. They talk to me every day and they have been encouraging me, so I have been lucky to have them," he adds. Mogorosi started 32 matches in all competitions for Phunya Sele Sele in his first season. He scored nine goals, including four in the last three League matches of the season. (Kickoff)
