Free State Stars goalkeeper Tshepo Motsoeneng has confirmed to the Siya crew that he is doing well in his recovery from illness.
Motsoeneng was diagnosed with chickenpox ahead of the team’s league game against Platinum Stars on September 14.
“When we were going to play against Platinum Stars I discovered that I was sick. I am fine now. I have recovered. The medication that I have been taking has worked well. I will be back at training on Monday.
"Maybe if I had known what it was earlier, I would have got better sooner. I only recently discovered that I had chickenpox and I had to stay away from the team. The team is going to play in a tournament in KZN this weekend,” said Motsoeneng.
The 34-year-old has played in one game so far this season, the 3-0 loss to Dikwena in the MTN8 quarterfinals in August.
Ghanaian goalkeeper Daniel Agyei is slowly making the number one jersey his own in Steve Komphela’s team this season.
Motsoeneng has refuted rumours that he is concerned about his limited game time at Ea Lla Koto.
“Even if I were looking for a job, why would I go public and say that I’m frustrated because of game time? It’s only four or five games into the season. What if another player picks up an injury that keeps him out for the rest of the season?
"There are 25 league games to go and two cup competitions to play for. What game time am I fighting about? Maybe, if the team had played 30 games already and we were not doing well I might feel frustrated. It’s only been five games and the team is getting the results,” explained Motsoeneng.
