The 28-year-old centre-back was one of the signings made by Bucs prior to the start of the season along with Ntsako Makhubela and Bandile Shandu, among others.

The former Maritzburg United player says he understands that Pirates have a huge squad and that he has been waiting for his chance.

“I was prepared for the game, and I have been waiting for this chance. Obviously, the squad is huge so each and every chance that you get you have to perform and deliver for the club. We knew very well that it’s not going to be an easy one. Obviously, we were playing an away game and in Africa it’s always tough. I’ve been there with the U20 and U23 national teams, so for me it’s not like a new thing and I knew exactly what I should expect,” said Mngonyama, speaking through the club’s media department.
