Boy wants to follow Ngele’s foot steps
Most of Township Rollers supporters have already started praising Segolame Boy for his dribbling skill and ability to pass the ball.
The young man has been likened to former Rollers star Mogakolodi Tsotso Ngele.
Boy joined Rollers from the relegated Serowe based Miscellaneous Soccer Club and has found himself as one of the key pl;ayers for the league defending champions.
His defense splitting passes are a marvel to watch and he packs a stinger of a shot as he proved this past weekend against BDF XI.
Over the past weekend, the young ‘Boy’ won the hearts of many Rollers fans when he scored arguably one of the best goals since the league commenced.
Just when many thought the game was destined for a deadlock the sensational kid used his individual brilliance to score from range, beating one of this league’s beast goal keepers in Takudzwa Ndoro.
“After receiving that pass I looked around to see if there was anyone in space to pass the ball to, when I realized there was no one I checked the goal keeper and noticed he had left his goal posts. Then I took a looping short making sure it will land right inside the goals. The secret is to be composed when taking such an audacious shot,” said Boy during an interview with Voice Sport.
“I am not sure if the goal has endeared me to Rollers supporters, I’m just glad I was able to score a goal that gave all of us the much needed 3 points. As for replacing Tsotso, that will never be an easy thing. I know it may look easy from the outside looking at my performance but I believe I need to work twice as hard to come close to what Ngele offered Rollers.”
Boy however said he has confidence in himself and will be taking things one step at a time.
He noted that Tsotso has done well for himself, for Rollers and this country and will continue doing so for the next coming years.
He added he will also do his part to emulate Ngele who is his role model.
The young young exciting player further said he is aware that playing for Rollers o comes along with pressure, but said he is taking it as a challenge which motivates him to work even harder every day.
For his part Rollers coach Madinda Ndlovu said he is working on the boy and capitalizing on his positives to make sure he realizes his full potential.
“The is no doubt that he is a talented young player but I will not compare him to any other player because there are many players who left Rollers and are currently doing well in South Africa.Nevertheless I respect the opinions of those who have likened him to Tsotso. This means there is something special they see in him”, said Ndlovu.
“I would love to work with Boy to see him climb up the ladder, and I am happy that the nationl team coach has seen him,” said Ndlovu.
