Lockdown A Blessing In Disguise For Celtic Star

While the COVID-19 enforced lockdown has hit some teams hard, with financial ramifications taking its toll, it has been a blessing for this Bloemfontein Celtic starlet.

The South African youth international Mondli Mpoto, who penned a two-and-a-half-year deal with an option at Siwelele, suffered a huge knock in his attempts to break into the first team at the club.

The 21-year-old, who signed from SuperSport United, suffered a groin strain in December 2019 that kept him sidelined for months.

However, the four-month hiatus in the Absa Premiership provided Mpoto with the perfect opportunity to recover from his injury and challenge Jackson Mabokgwane for the Mangaung outfit’s number one jersey alongside Sipho Chaine.

The club recently shared images of Mpoto in training with the team, having recently returned to Siwelele Park under the watchful eye of newly-appointed coach John Maduka.

Mpoto will be hoping to put his hand up in Celtic’s remaining Absa Premiership fixtures as well as their quest for silverware in the form of the Nedbank Cup.
