Gift Motupa glad to be challenging for league tile with Bidvest Wits


Motupa was one of the key men who helped save Baroka from going back down to the National First Division and he is now playing an integral role for the Clever Boys.

The former Orlando Pirates man has bagged nine goals for the club and has recently spoken about challenging for both the Golden Boot and PSL Footballer of the Season award.

"Last season was a bad experience for me because I had never been in that situation before, but I stayed focused and pushed the guys in training because I was one of the experienced guys at Baroka, so we needed to push each other to make sure we get out of the situation. It’s not nice to be there," Motupa said.

"This time is good [to be challenging for the league] because we have experienced guys like Tyson [Thulani Hlatshwayo] and Buhle [Mkhwanazi]. They’ve done it before and they are the ones who are motivating us to say ‘this is the way we can win the league’. So we just need to focus."
