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.
“Obviously, one must mention Memela. He was our top performer today, with the rest of group. He made a huge difference. He showed his experience, that he has been playing in big games for some time,” said Dlamini, as quoted on the club’s official website.
“He rose to the occasion, even when we brought in Makhaula you could see, just to stabilize that midfield. Like I say, it is our first game, there is a lot of players that are knew in the team, but it’s going to the right direction,” the coach added.
In their next match, AmaZulu are scheduled to travel to the Mbombela Stadium for the clash against TS Galaxy on Wednesday evening.
