In an interview with SowetanLive Sekhotlong revealed that his family supports Sundowns and that his father is a big supporter of the Tshwane side.

“Since leaving University of Pretoria I’ve always been away from home. So being back at home and actually for a team like Mamelodi Sundowns mean the most to me‚” the forward said.

“It’s a dream come true‚ so it’s a very proud move for me and my family.

“It’s kind of funny because I was playing for Free State Stars and I did well for the first half of the season and then I got injured.

“And now when we came back from preseason I had troubles with my fitness and some injuries‚ but knowing what the problem was. Free State Stars decided to end my contract.

“Obviously I was clubless and looking for a team‚ and luckily Sundowns came through and said‚ ‘Let’s give you a chance. We think you could add value to the team’.

“I did have other offers but I couldn’t turn this one down‚ because it’s an opportunity of a lifetime.

“I was willing to take the risk‚ and I knew that if I could give my all I am capable of playing and adding value to the team.”

“My family are Sundowns fans – Especially my father‚” Sekotlong concluded.
