Maritzburg's Michael Morton still has Bafana dream

Former South Africa under-23 player, Morton tells Goal that he can still achieve great things in his football career
Speaking exclusively to Goal, the former Orlando Pirates trainee and current Maritzburg United midfielder has been given the task of leading his KwaZulu-Natal side as captain this season.

‘I think I can still make it to the national team if I work hard enough. The challenge is the competition for my position in the national team is not easy at all,” Morton told Goal.

He is satisfied with the progress of his development coming from Pirates' system, before joining Bidvest Wits.

“It's been an exciting journey for me, and I think I have adapted well here in KwaZulu-Natal. There is always that pressure that the club must do well, but we are just taking things as they come,” said Morton.

Although his contract is coming to an end this season, Morton said he would like to stay at United, instead of looking for a bigger club in Gauteng.

"My contract is coming to an end, come the end of this season and I am not sure what will happen. I would not say that I have had any offers, because nothing is tangible,” he said.
