‘Memela Was Our Top Performer’

Former Orlando Pirates star, Luvuyo Memela, has been lauded for his performance against his ex-teammates from the Soweto giants.     

The winger played an influential role as the Durban-based outfit held Pirates to a 1-1 draw in their opening DStv Premiership match at the Jonsson Kings Park Stadium on Saturday night and AmaZulu coach Ayanda Dlamini has given the crowd favourite credit for his performance.
