Bucs Poor Season, Ndoro Speaks Out

Ndoro Has Given Reasons For Pirates Not Doing Well

By Soccer Laduma - Jun 30, 2017 03:54 PM

In an exclusive Soccer Laduma interview this week, Orlando Pirates’ Tendai Ndoro has questioned unity among his teammates, compared to players from other PSL teams.

Speaking about this past season’s race for the top goalscorer award between him and Lebogang Manyama, said the PSL’s Footballer of the Season nominee had the backing of his Cape Town City teammates throughout.

“When I went to the AFCON, I had 11 goals and Lebogang Manyama was on eight. But when we came back, things were different. After ‘Lebo’ scored 11, I even told some of my mates that this guy is going to win (the Golden Boot award) because you can see the way their team plays. They play for one another. They say, “We have Lebo and must do everything for him so that even if we don’t win the league, we’ll have something to show for this season – the Top Goalscorer, the Telkom Knockout and the Player of the Season.” They were professional, they were united and you could see even off the field, they were always together. They have a relationship even off the field and it helped in that they could get along in whatever they were doing, unlike us at Orlando Pirates. Like, I will never go to any teammate of mine to suggest that we go somewhere and chill or come (with my teammate) to my place and chill. Those things sometimes contribute. Like, this week, we go to Ndoro’s place and next week we go to (Luvuyo) Memela’s place. But with us, if someone says, “Let me go to this one’s place”, it’s like you are creating a scene,” said the striker.

The Zimbabwean says he is inspired by the togetherness at the likes of City, Mamelodi Sundowns and Kaizer Chiefs.

“There was none of that thing, that love, of saying we must play for one another. That thing contributed to us as Pirates not doing well because football is about love. If I don’t love my teammates, how am I supposed to love the game that I’m playing? We have to love one another so we can achieve. Even if we say results are not coming, but at least we will have love. Check Mamelodi Sundowns, Cape Town City and Kaizer Chiefs – those guys are always together. Sometimes I wish I can go home with my fellow striker so that we teach each other things and go together to the gym. Sometimes you see Chiefs players going to the gym together not wearing their club gear and I ask myself, “Huh, what’s wrong with us? Why don’t we do the same thing?” Even though results are not coming, but if we are showing people that we love one another, they will understand that results are not coming but these are guys in love. But now everyone is doing his own thing. Yes, we are different people and have our things to do after football, but why can’t we do things together just to show that love? If you say, “Each man for himself, God for us all”... ah, in a game of football, that’s hard, my man. Football is all about love,” said the 29-year-old.

Don’t miss out on Ndoro’s no-holds-barred interview in edition 1029 of Soccer Laduma, which is currently on the shelves.

Well said my brother. Unfortunately you might be punished for telling the truth. There must be a complete clear out of these useless players at Pirates. If I had money I'd buy Pirates from this absentee owner called Khoza. He just doesn't care about the team and the us the supporters anymore.

Our captain didn't do anything about that even trying to reunite the players because it's part of his job as a captain if Pirates don't replace this useless captain of ours then we must look forward yet to another worst season . This guy must step down as Orlando Pirates captain he has worse already we don't need other disgrace . Thank u Ndoro for your honestly

@Ruud-Krol(mugabel) A striker is not a defender.If a striker doesn't get the supply..he will not score.If he become the defender,he will not score

I think what ndoro hv said is true ,even us as fans see that ,for me ndoro was getting the supply form Mpho and lastly we saw the Mpho not supplying anymore like the first games of the league ,there is rlly no love at pirates I miss players like jali, McCarthy. jali use to carver for every team mate in the field the likes of D Klet he was showing team "Love" Pirates really have to make changes I believe the captain is not strong enough for the team, You can even see in this advert Where they are the Dstv advert the players don't hv respect for him Mahlaba "uyamazi uOpa unjani?"I mean, it an advert but I think he should have said something better to his captain ,the guy (Opa) is a good player, not a good captain and I think as us as Fan it not fear for us what pirates players are going and I don't think pirates will still be the same even we can buy good players if thy don't fight for each other, we are still going to cry, Even Khoza can't help the team, all I say we need changes at pirates, the captain, team sheet ect. I mean, going back to ndoro this guy even tried to bring love to pirates players he use to take pictures with is teammates trying to show love, people started say his a instagram player ,I was one of team but now I see

This cow is hurt that he failed to meet his individual target of becoming the top goalscorer now he's blaming everything but not himself. He talks about playing for each other but he himself failed to supply his teammates but instead attempted to score from impossible position just to try and catch Manyama. Sometimes you must practice what you preach. If you see other people's mistakes but fail to see yours then you're good for nothing.
