Q&A with Mpho Kgaswane

Cape Town Spurs caught up with Mpho Kgaswane in the build-up to Monday’s Nedbank Cup match away to Baroka FC.

The Botswana international completed a move to the Urban Warriors last month following 18 months at Azerbaijan club Zira FC. Kgaswane, 26, started his professional career at Gaborone United before moving to Baroka in January 2017.

The attacking midfielder made over 50 appearances for the Limpopo club and was part of the Bakgaga side that won the 2018 Telkom Knockout Cup.

Now in the colours of Spurs, Kgaswane will be plotting Baroka’s downfall. Get to know more about our Botswana star, here:

What made you fall in love with the beautiful game? 
“The reason I love football is because my father was a sports person. So, every time my father would come home, he would come home with boots. So that was something pushing me to play, because I knew that he wanted me to play and be successful.”

Where would you like to see yourself in 10 years time?

“I would say that I would just like my career to go forward. I just want to see myself, I don’t know, playing professional football, like overseas with the big teams.”

Who inspires you in football?

“There are a lot of players. If we had to go through all of them, we would be here all day! If I had to choose one, probably [Luka] Modric because we play the same position and I love his style of play.”

Do you have any advice for younger people with similar aspirations as yourself?

“Yes, so through my experience in football, I learnt that when you work hard, you achieve. Once you believe in yourself, you achieve. Because for you to perform, you first have to believe in yourself, and in order to form a team, it needs to start with you.”
