Makola Not Intimidated By New Arrivals

Following the arrival of Issa Sarr from Platinum Stars and Thabo Qalinge from Mpumalanga Black Aces, Orlando Pirates midfielder Mpho Makola has said that he is not bothered by the possibility of losing his place in the team as revealed in the latest edition of Soccer Laduma, issue 884.

After being disappointed with his contribution for the Soweto giants in the 2013/14 Absa Premiership season, Makola is now a regular in the squad under coach Vladimir Vermezovic.

Makola said that ‘VV’ saw his positive attitude and hard work which prompted the Serbian to give the 28-year-old a chance in his squad.

“I always try to be positive and I think that’s what VV saw. He saw that I was a fighter and he likes players like that. I’m just glad that he is giving me more opportunities to play and, like I said, I hope to continue playing regularly this season,” he revealed to the Siya crew.

When speaking of the pressure that comes with competing with new players in the team, he remained adamant that he will work hard for his spot in the starting 11.

“I don’t think I will be benched because of them. Look, competition is always good for the team because each player knows that he has to work harder to get a place in the starting line-up, and that he needs to work extra hard to retain his place in the team, so I welcome the competition that these players bring to Pirates,” he added.
