Following his promotion from the Mangaung club’s MultiChoice Diski Challenge team, Maema was handed his official PSL debut by Celtic coach Veselin Jelusic during the side’s first match of 2018 against Golden Arrows at the weekend.

Speaking to the Siya crew, the starlet promised Celtic to repay the faith they showed in him for giving him a chance to launch his professional football career.

“It’s a privilege to be part of the Siwelele family. I would like to thank the chairman and management for this opportunity and I will reward them with hard work. The technical team have been so helpful in guiding me and taking the pressure away from me,” said the young attacking midfielder.

‘Khama', as the player is known in football circles, is seen as a replacement for former Celtic star Kabelo Mahlasela, who has left Mangaung to join Kaizer Chiefs during the current transfer window.

He's good, at first I was saying "Chiefs claim Mahlasela is injured while they sent him back to Celtic !". But I later realised it's another guy. Siwelele must polish that boy for us , he's a future Chiefs and Bafana star.
