Jamie Webber discusses his playing time woes at Sekhukhune

Sekhukhune United midfielder Jamie Webber has discussed his lack of playing time at the club in the second half of the season.

Webber was one of the club’s key players at the beginning of the season after joining Sekhukhune from SuperSport United.

At that time, Brandon Truter was in charge, however, he was shown the exit in November 2023 following a string of poor results.

In the second half of the season, the 26-year-old has played 12 matches in all competitions. He has made six starts and came six times as a substitute. In those matches, he has scored one goal and provided three assists.


Webber says he’s unfazed by starting on the bench as it’s a situation that he can’t control. All he’s concentrating on is performing well when he’s given the opportunity.

In addition, the midfielder is aware of the competition for a place in the starting line-up. Babina Noko have talented players like Linda Mntambo, Siphesihle Mkhize, and Kamohelo Mokotjo in that position.

“It’s been difficult to fight and to play in the team, but I’m always up for a challenge,” Webber told FARPost. “I’m always ready to do well when I’m given the opportunity to play.

“I think I’ve been taking it well, I’ve been dealing with it well. It’s difficult to be a starting player week in, week out then now starting on the bench. All I can control is my performance when I do get my chance. I feel like that’s what I’ve been doing.

“Linda [Mntambo] is coming back from a long-term injury, before he got the injury he was a very important player for the team.

“There’s continuity with Kamohelo Mokotjo and [Siphesihle] Mkhize they’re our main engine, they make the team play.”
