Pirates Legend: He Will Get His Confidence Back

A former Orlando Pirates striker is confident that Tshegofatso Mabasa will finally get his confidence back to be the player he was before his disappointment with the South African senior national team.

Mabasa has appeared to be low in confidence in recent matches since he was substituted in the first half by Bafana Bafana coach Hugo Broos in the away leg of the back-to-back 2022 World Cup qualifiers against Ethiopia last month.

After being an unused substitute against Stellenbosch FC as Bucs won 3-0 in the league last week, Mabasa repaid the faith shown in him by the technical team by scoring one of the goals when he was selected to start in the CAF Confederation Cup match against Liberia’s LPRC Oilers on Sunday.

Speaking of Mabasa’s progress, former Pirates striker Bruce Ramokgadi is confident that the 25-year-old will regain his confidence to return to the form he enjoyed before his disappointment with Bafana.   

“A goal is always a good confidence booster when you are a soccer player, whether you are a defender or a striker, scoring a goal is a good way of boosting one’s confidence. I am confident that he will get his confidence back,” said Ramokgadi.
