“It was a big disappointment to lose the title in the manner we did last season. However, in football you have to move on and accept that there can only be three results, you win lose or draw,” Mateyaunga told the Daily News on Sunday last week.“I have realised that it was not meant to be. It was just not our year. Because if it was meant to be, even on a bad day, we could have won those last two matches like what was happening previously when we were grinding results when we didn’t play particularly well.”
So far the club has brought in at least 21 new faces as coach Darlington Dodo’s team has completely been revamped.
By the time the season finished, Mateyaunga was undoubtedly Makepekepe’s leading goalkeeper.
“There is going to be a lot of competition for the number 1 jersey and it’s something that I appreciate because that competition will push me to become a better player,” Mateyaunga said.
With all the new players coming in, there is an air of expectation around Makepekepe with fans expecting nothing less than the title.
