The Jomo Cosmos founder mentioned that consistency is key and that it’s too early to compare Saleng with legendary players, while stating it adds unnecessary pressure on them.

“Saleng comes from the league we are in [ABC Motsepe League]. He was playing for a team called Orbits, he doesn’t come from anywhere, he comes from here,” Sono told journalists as per GagasiFM.

“But Pirates took him and loaned him and he developed, now the comparing him with me. Two games don’t make you a Jomo Sono!

“Let’s be honest, two games don’t make you a Jomo, it’s a fact. I played for 20 years and I was the youngest professional player at 15. Let’s not compare things that are not the same, this is water and oil.

“Lets encourage him, he is a very good player. Because if we compare him with Jomo and Ace it’s a bit of a problem because they vanish somehow.

“Same thing happened to Tso, the pressure you putting on them is too much. Let them enjoy their football, let them enjoy their career and let’s not compare them with anybody. Let’s compare them with themselves.”
