Ndoro On His Target And Why It Wasn’t Achieved

Tendai Ndoro Summarised His Season With Orlando Pirates

By Soccer Laduma - Jun 29, 2017 07:32 PM

Orlando Pirates’ Tendai Ndoro has revealed that he had a 20-goal target set for him by his former coach at the club, Muhsin Ertugral, before the Turkish coach parted ways with the Soweto giants last year.

Ndoro, who started the 2016/17 season like a house on fire, as he was scoring goals regularly for Bucs under Ertugral, finished the season like a shadow of the player he was in the first round of the campaign.

The Zimbabwean struggled in front of goals in the second round of the season, under Bucs’ current coach, Kjell Jonevret. Having scored 11 goals in the first round of the season, the striker finished the second half of the campaign with only one goal to his name, which came through via a penalty against Free State Stars.

In his interview with Soccer Laduma this week, Ndoro has revealed the target set for him by Ertugral.

“Muhsin gave me a target of 20 goals. The way I started, I was scoring two and three goals per match and, at the time, I thought I could reach the target. He also said I could surpass the target and I was gaining confidence. But eish, he left me with that target, thinking that I was going to reach it now and I feel like.... (pauses),” said Ndoro.

Ndoro has also explained how his game was affected by the departure of Ertugral from the club.

“Like you know, I’m the type of a striker who stays in the box. I don’t like dropping deep and collecting balls but, in the second round, my game changed from how we started the first round with Muhsin. He always encouraged me to stay in the box and that is why I was scoring. If a coach says you must do this, then you must do what a coach wants you to do. From the first match of the season, I was feeling like, “Ja, this is me and I’m playing football the way I want.” But come second round… coaches have their own way of playing and you can’t force yourself to be who you are not. The coach came and he had his own philosophy in terms of what he wants. You don’t have to argue, you just do what the coach wants. That reduced goalscoring opportunities for me. I was scoring with this type of play, but now this coach wants me to do this and I’m not scoring. You end up being a bad player, if I can put it that way. Coaches have their way of playing,” he said.

This coach is useless. Matlabawas playing well at leftback bcoz he can mark with both feet. Issa Sarr and Manyisa are dead. Mobara is not a natural central defender. The strikers are not getting any supply. Wome is lazy hence he is not getting any offers from other PSL teams. If he was a good player you would have Wits, Sondowns, Chiefs lining up to sign him. I have never heard of Pirates signing a player on loan. this was the 1st time. This show cracks & incompetence in our administrators. Fire the coach, Wome, Manyisa, Gcaba, Gabuza, Motupa

@Lurh yernder if you once played a soccer or any other game,you will realise that the moment you disobey coach's instructions it means you get off the field or else you leave.

You will never score 20 goals in a season Ndoro because you are a k*k player....You only care about your own personal glory and are not a team player....There are countless instances where you opted to shoot on goal instead of passing a player who is in a better position to score than you....You and Makola were cut from the same cloth....Lazy kak players

That's a lie Ndoro and you know it. ill-discipline cost you and in the end you cost the club. Jonevret has always complained that you drift away from the box. Quite clearly you became too big headed to play for the team but you chased the ball to the middlefield because you wanted the cheer of the fans more. And then you would lose the ball carelessly hence so many goals against Pirates. Be man enough to admit that fame caught up with you. Only then will you work your way to being the good striker that we know you are. But you won't if you continue lying
