The Man Pirates Need This Season

Everyone expected Brighton Mhlongo to be like Senzo Meyiwa, and while the lad tried his best, no one, not even he could become like or replace Meyiwa.

Pirates have four goalkeepers on their books, and, of the four, Ovono seems to be the best. What is really bothersome is the way supporters talk about him. It’s like they are already waiting for him to make a mistake.

After the game against Arrows, supporters criticised Ovono's mistake that led to the goal. All goalkeepers make mistakes. No supporter can truly say no goalkeepers make mistakes in the PSL.

People saw what Bidvest did to Kaizer Chiefs on Tuesday and now Pirates play Bidvest Wits on Saturday in the MTN8, and Pirates need to use Ovono if they are to beat Bidvest Wits. There is a reason why he is the number one for his country. Provided that strikers score goals, Pirates Will Only Win If They Play Ovono.

Do you think Ovono deserves to be Pirates’ number one?
