Morena Picks Billiat Among Eight PSL Speedsters

Thapelo Morena, a player considered to arguably be the quickest and most versatile in the Premier Soccer League currently, reckons he has competition in the fast lane.

This week the Mamelodi Sundowns defender-cum-attacker picked five players who he believes have incredible pace and finds difficult as opponents.

“It’s not easy, but for me the players I find to have the pace in the league is Craig Martin and Surprise Ralani at Cape Town City. There’s also Shaune Mogaila at Highlands Park and it’s a bit tight between me and Wayde Jooste because we played together (at Bloemfontein Celtic). I think for me Kudakwashe Mahachi is quick also,” said Morena.

Asked if he ever struggles to keep up with anyone during the match, the Bafana Bafana star admitted it wasn’t as easy as people think it is out on the pitch.

“It’s not just about the pace, but the style of play as well. Look at Khama Billiat, Evans Rusike and Thembinkosi Lorch, they are all tricky players. Most of them are good on their take-off, their acceleration makes a difference and they give me a hard time when we come up against them. It’s about working on my weaknesses and their strengths,” said Morena.
