Molwantwa believes in his Toronto teammates

The arrival of a fake investor in the form Gift Mogapi last year at Toronto brought a lot of joy amongst those close to the club.
Mogapi brought some of the reknown South African internationals in Bongani Vilakazi and Manqoba Ngwenya to our shores. The vision of the ‘businessman’ at the time even convinced veteran striker Molwantwa that Notwane will be amongst the title contenders this season.
As it turned out to be, Mogapi was just a fake who brought nothing but pain to the hordes of Notwane supporters. Lack of funds meant that Toronto continued to struggle something which has led them into the messy situation of relegation. It has been a mixed season for Notwane as far as results are concerned.
As they enter the most important period of their lives, marksman Molwantwa believes it is time to forget about the past and focus on the job at hand.
“We need to be a united force because we cannot change the past. It has been tough for the club because there have been no monetary incentives. The games have also come thick and fast for us especially against title contenders. It is not easy to play BDF XI, Centre Chiefs, Gaborone United and Township Rollers all in succession,” said Molwantwa.
In their past three games, Toronto have only managed to collect a point against Chiefs. This afternoon it is not getting any easier for Toronto as they take on Rollers at the National Stadium in Gaborone, kick off at 4pm.
“We can compete against Rollers and get a positive result from the game. All is needed is to motivate the boys maybe by offering them little incentives. I believe we’ve got a bunch of fighters in this team who can save what seems like a sinking ship,” Molwantwa added. The aging striker was in the same situation with Rollers in 2002 and he admits that it is an unbearable position to be in.
“It is not a good position to be in but you need to have a team of believers. I think if we can put our heads together we can win this fight,” said Molwantwa.
