Former Bidvest Wits midfielder Kobamelo Kodisang has set himself a goal of breaking into SC Braga’s first team by January.
The 20-year-old completed a move to Portuguese giants SC Braga from the Clever Boys after putting pen to paper on a three-year contract with his new club.
Kodisang returned to Portugal after a successful loan stint in the third tier with AD Sanjoanense last season, where he was impressive while on loan from Wits after bagging five goals in 24 appearances for Sanjoanense.
The technically gifted attacker also represented South Africa at the U20 Fifa World Cup in Poland.
‘I am still trying to adjust to the new life because Braga and Sanjoanense are two different teams. The philosophies and tactics are not the same, so I will need a few months to fully understand everything,’ Kodisang told the Sowetan.
‘I always make sure that I do everything that the coaches tell me to do. My aim is that by January I should be in the first team, playing regularly. But I won’t put myself under unnecessary pressure.
‘I am always on [digital streaming service] Netflix, because if I go out I don’t know where to go. Sometimes I eat dinner out with my teammates, but it’s rare that I go out.
‘I cannot lie, the food is not great. I miss my mom’s pots, especially my favourite food, chicken. In Portugal they cook it differently and I always feel SA chicken is the best.
‘In terms of the language [Portuguese], I am still struggling but I am learning it bit by bit.’
