Ramokgadi has now commended the club for allowing Lepasa to depart the club on loan to a direct rival.
"It's a good thing because it's not like he is getting enough game time at Pirates," Ramokgadi tells KickOff.
"He is still a youngster, so he needs game time to grow, and a new striker is arriving from Cameroon.
"For that striker to get a chance, it means Lepasa will have to continue being a fringe player.
"So, it's a good move for him. It's not the end of the road for Lepasa, and it's not the first time he's been loaned out.
"And that TS Galaxy move worked wonders for him.
"All he needs is game time and to play as much as he can.
"To be match fit, you need to play. He will gain more experience where he is going.
"There is no pressure at SuperSport United."
