Phnom Penh៖ Seth Mann South revealed that he has received racism over his physical size, but this doesn’t bother him as he has a strong desire to be a professional footballer.

The winger joined Bati National Football Training Center in 2016 before signing his professional contract with the 2018 Metfone Cambodian League champions NagaWorld in 2019.

The 20-year-old is working hard and learn from his NagaWorld teammates as he is hopeful to impress his coach Meas Channa and get more playing time in the Metfone Cambodian League.

The NagaWorld winger told “Bati National Football Training Center is a great place, and it’s a place where I really wanted to train football. It gave me a quality training, and it’s a great place to stay – it’s a perfect place. I love living there a lot.

“During my time at Bati, I always trained hard to achieve my dream. I joined NagaWorld as it’s a great club with many experienced players, from whom I can learn. They always encourage me and tell me what I need to improve, and I always listen to their advice. As a young player, I can learn a lot from them.

“Some people said that I am too small to play football, but I don’t care. They said so to make me feel demotivated, but I don’t listen to this a lot. They can say whatever they want about me, but I only work hard or even harder than the others.

“I’m lucky to have a lot of experienced players around me. They always tell me to work hard. Coach Meas Channa has so much experience, and he has guided me a lot. He is a great coach to me.

“I will fight to break into the team’s starting XI. I know I’m small, so I need to work hard to improve. Hopefully, all my hard work will pay off one day and soon.”
