Sebola On Mlambo’s Omission From Bucs Line-Up

Andries Sebola has attributed Xola Mlambo’s exclusion from Orlando Pirates’ starting line-up on the weekend to loss of form.

Against AmaZulu on Saturday, Mlambo was a notable exclusion from Bucs’ starting line-up, with coach Milutin Sredojevic opting to put the central midfielder on the bench the entire match. 

The Buccaneers defeated Usuthu 4-1 and remained in Absa Premiership title chase with the likes of Bidvest Wits and Mamelodi Sundowns at the top of the log.

Sebola has explained why he believes that Sredojevic was right for not selecting Mlambo to his starting line-up.

“He (Mlambo) was rested and I think that was good for the team’s midfield. Mpho Makola came on against SuperSport and I think he showed hunger. He came on again (against AmaZulu) and used his experience to help the team to go forward. I think Mlambo has lost a little bit of form because he has played so many games for the team. I think Makola should get his chance to play more regularly,” said Sebola.

Mlambo, 27, has started 16 of Pirates’ league matches so far this season, and together with the likes of Thembinkosi Lorch and Vincent Pule, among others, the former Wits midfielder has been influential for Sredojevic’s side.
