The 30-year-old attacking midfielder explained the differences between their disappointing domestic campaign and reaching the Confed final.
“The guys grabbed their opportunities in Caf matches but they could not perform at the same tempo in the domestic league. If they could convert their chances in the PSL, we could be speaking a different language.
“I was not happy because I did not play much because of injuries. I am feeling a lot better now. I had a tough season and I am taking baby steps.
“The best thing for me to do is concentrate on recovering and staying injury-free so I can come back and do what I do best – score goals.”
