September: Money Will Come As Long As You Are Happy

Thabo September is in the building, and is answering your questions. Today, he discusses his best moment in football, why he did not feature regularly for Bafana Bafana, turning down a move to a Soweto giant, and what we can expect from SuperSport United next season.

What is your most memorable moment in soccer? – superjoe wa letsatsantsa

Thabo September: Scoring in the Nedbank Cup final in 2012. And, as a team, winning the championship three times in a row, those were the best moments for me.

You are one of the quality players who were never given the opportunity to play for Bafana Bafana for a long time. How do you feel about that? – Molefe mahlaba

TS: Well, I think it's because I've never managed to complete a season playing regularly. I think the most games I ever played in a season was 25. I've always had injuries. I've cracked my ribs, torn my ligaments, torn my meniscus. So I've always had serious injuries which kept me from playing regularly, and I don't think it's fair to select a guy who hasn't been playing regularly for the national team, unless it's Cristiano Ronaldo.

There was a time when Chiefs were interested in you. Were you not disappointed that you didn't make the switch? – JAY002

TS: No, I'm definitely not disappointed. I've taken the right decision. SSU is a family. For me, professionally, I never wanted to play for the fame and the money. For me, money will come no matter where you are as long as you are happy. That's how we won the championship and Nedbank Cup. I don't feel like I missed out, if I did it was only financially. For me, it was a matter of me being happy, and I was happy where I am. It would have to be something really extraordinary for me to leave SSU.

What can we expect from SSU next season? What are you expecting from the new arrivals? – Nikolaos Kirkinis

TS: Expectations are high next season. We know what the coach wants from us, we have five trophies to fight for next season, including the CAF Champions League. So our target is to either reach finals or get three trophies. The quality that we have in the team and the technical team, and the back-up we have from management, there is real quality there. We feel like we underachieved last season. This season, it's our turn to really step up and compete.
