Mobara Issues Bucs Apology: We Have To Unite
Abbubaker Mobara Has Apologised To Orlando Pirates' Fans
Orlando Pirates defender, Abbubaker Mobara, has issued an apology to the club’s fans after their disappointing 2016/17 season, saying that the players must now unite.
Mobara received personal praise for his first campaign with the Buccaneers following his move from Ajax Cape Town, winning the Nedbank Cup Player of the Tournament award, however, was clearly upset with the fact that it ended without a single piece of silverware for the team.
The versatile 23-year-old was speaking at the launch of Pirates’ new Adidas jersey for 2017/18 and admitted that there are things they need to fix ahead of the new campaign.
Addressing the media, the Bafana Bafana international said, “Having a bad season last season is something that’s now in the past. We have to just put it under the bus, forgive ourselves for what happened and just move on. It’s a new league and it’s anyone’s league again. We’re starting over.
“From here forward we just have to prepare for what’s coming ahead of us. There are things that we cannot go back and fix, but we have to fix it now. As a team, we have to unite, get together, decide what we want for the season and go out there and prove ourselves to everybody.
“I feel we owe everybody else an apology for our past season, but we’re also humans and make mistakes.”
Pirates face Kaizer Chiefs on July 29th in the Carling Black Label Cup as both club’s don their new kits for the first time.
