Not too long after joining Orlando Pirates, the Senegalese midfielder, Issa Sarr, received high praises from fellow teammate Thandani Ntshumayelo.
According to the Club’s official website: “Sarr is class; it is very easy to play next to him. He gives you 100% and if your man has left you, Sarr will try very hard to give you cover. He was brought here for that. He really plays simply. It has been a real privileged to play alongside him” said Ntshumayelo.
Sarr was particularly influential in the middle of the park during his 45 minutes against the University of Pretoria on Wednesday evening. While in the middle, 56% of his total number of passes were conducted there, and he also had a steady stream of balls in the final thirds on each end of the park.
In attack, he completed 62% of his passes going forward, while at the back his seven passes reached it's destination at a 100% rating, summing up a grand total of an 82% successful passing rate at in total.
