“It didn’t happen the way I expected‚” Lebese admitted to TimesLIVE.

“So‚ like a professional‚ I had a couple of meetings and I’m looking to make a move next year.

“It was disappointing. It was a childhood dream. I’m glad that it happened. No hard feelings. Like I said‚ it wasn’t what I thought it would be.”
