Former national football striker Osea Vakatalesau has broken his silence on why he is playing for Nadroga at the Courts Interdistrict Championship.

The former Ba, Lautoka and Hekari FC star rep told SUNsports on Sunday night that he was fulfilling his mother’s request.

“Coming to play Nadroga was never in my mind, but just because my mum is from Korotogo,” he said.

“She asked me to come and help Nadroga qualify and play in the Premier Division next year.

“Also I have was suspended from football for the last two years and I’m grateful to the Nadroga officials for appealing my case. That is also another reason why I am here with Nadroga.”

Vakatalesau’s older brothers Leone Vurukania and Peni Finau are also former Ba and national football reps.

The Wailotua, Wainibuka native said he had a mission to accomplish with the Moshin’s Insulations sponsored Nadroga side.

He is among the many former Ba reps like Josefata Neibuli, veteran Kiniviliame Naika, Paulo Buke and Mavileko Nakama who are now playing for Nadroga.

Vakatalesau said they had been preparing well for the IDC.

“We have been unbeaten because we have been working hard. I have been telling the boys to work hard. We will take each game at a time. We also have Bua in the IDC and we will also play them in the play-offs.”

He added the support from the business community in Sigatoka had been overwhelming.
