Orlando Pirates assistant coach, Fadlu Davids, has revealed what striker Zakhele Lepasa has been told to do to improve as a player.
Lepasa was one of the standout performers for Pirates against Kaizer Chiefs in their MTN8 first leg semi-final match last weekend as he scored one of the goals as the Buccaneers won 3-0 at the Orlando Stadium.
Speaking during the week as part of the build-up to this afternoon’s MTN8 second leg semi-final match against Amakhosi, Davids said the 23-year-old forward should keep his feet on the ground as he looks to make a name for himself at the Soweto giants.
“Lepasa is a player with huge potential but he’s got to keep his feet on the ground. He has not yet…one good performance in a derby game…and in professional football it’s one thing to have a good game in the derby but it’s another thing to be consistent in your performances,” said Davids, speaking on Pirates TV.
“We urge Lepasa to keep his feet on the ground, work hard and it’s our goal to help him reach that potential but it calls for him to be calm, to be clear-structured in his thinking and try to perform every match not only like it’s a derby, but like it’s your last match,” the coach said.
Lepasa has featured in all the matches for the Buccaneers so far this season and his performances have been improving.
