“Our experience in the Champions League in 2013 will come in handy for the Confederation Cup and it will make us better players,” reasoned the lanky midfielder.

“African experience builds players. Look at how it helped players like Oupa Manyisa and Andile Jali do well for the national squad.”

“I wasn’t a regular when I played in the Champions League, but now that I playing more often I want to learn about playing in Africa and further continue cementing my place in the Bucs starting eleven,” concluded Bibo.

In the 20 league appearances Makola has played for Pirates, he has 17 starts and has netted twice.
