Pirates’ New Signing: I Used To Finish As The Top Goalscorer

While acclimatising to his new surroundings, Orlando Pirates new signing Wayde Jooste has given an indication of what the fans can expect from him in the new season regarding how he prefers to be utilised on the field.   

Jooste was officially announced as a new signing for the Buccaneers last Tuesday after signing a three-year deal, as confirmed by the club.

The former Highlands Park player says he used to be a striker earlier in his career, before he moved to the wing. 

“No actually I wasn’t a wing back. I actually started off as a striker in my junior days. I used to always finish as the top goalscorer like every season… I wouldn’t say bored, but I wanted more of the ball so I decided to move to wing. The transition to wing back wasn’t much of a big thing for me because the qualities are similar in the demand that both positions require,” Jooste told Pirates’ official website.

“One can never be fully satisfied with their game, I am not different. There are areas I feel I can improve and this – amongst other things, is what I work on from time to time,” the 29-year-old added.
