TS Galaxy’s pacey winger Shaune Mogaila, who was subject of interest from Orlando Pirates has opened up on the injury nightmare that kept him sidelined for a large portion of the 2020/21 season.
As reported by the Siya crew, Mogaila, 26, was on the wanted list of the Buccaneers, but their interest stalled after the player was sidelined for over four months after undergoing knee surgery, that saw him miss 17 matches in total.
After making a full recovery, Mogaila managed to return in the last three games for coach Owen Da Gama’s side as they narrowly missed out on a top eight spot.
In an interview with the club’s media department, the University of Johannesburg graduate has opened up on his struggle with injury and how he managed to bounce back.
“Coming back from an injury its not that easy but it is doable, but you have to keep your head high and keep on working very hard, stay committed, stay dedicated and keep focusing on what’s best to make sure that you are on your highest, trying by all means to push harder,” Mogaila said.
“Because the gents were not in the team level as me, they were higher, and I was lower and I had to make sure that I maintain the standard of where they are. So it was a motivation to say I am back and I am done with my rehab, I just have to focus on my rehab because that is the most important thing to be able to play again, because doing a knee surgery is not that easy because it might be the last of your career but to step back on the pitch and say that I am on level one and say I can reach level five, its just a matter of how you push it,” he added.
