“Linda is one of the hard working players at Pirates. When you have him on the field you know he is going to do the job. He is a player who is suitable to play against teams with players that like to run. When you have Linda you know that he is going to run. He is different to a player like Xola Mlambo. He is a box-to-box player who can also attack and defend. He gives 100% and likes to be in the box and has a knack of scoring. He is aggressive!” Mathe told the Siya
