The 25-year-old racked up the most votes overall of any outfield player and will run out in a confident mood after securing his side a 1-0 win over CS Sfaxien in the CAF Confederation Cup on Sunday with a beautiful chipped goal.

“This will be my first time in the starting line-up for the CBL Cup and I want to thank the supporters for voting for me. It shows they enjoy what I do on the field of play and what I contribute to the team,” Rakhale said.

'Jomo' is aware of the danger of dribbling too much and knows that it is about finding the right moments in the game to use skills.

“I know supporters enjoy skills and dribbling from players because that’s part of the reason why they come to the stadium. I don’t do it all the time. I only dribble when it’s necessary for me to dribble. The coach has also told me to dribble only when it is necessary but if he tells me to stop it for the benefit of the team, then I will definitely stop or slow down a bit,” the winger told Soccer Laduma in a CBL interview.
