Orlando Pirates midfielder, Lehlogonolo Masalesa, will definitely want to start the preparations for the 2013/14 season by playing in this year’s Carling Black Label Cup.
The youngster didn’t have the best of seasons for Pirates in the previous campaign due to lack of game time. But Masalesa has showed, with his performances in the few games he has played for Bucs, that he can become one of the players to lead the team’s midfield in the future.
Following the player’s impressive showing for Bucs in their CAF Champions League campaign, the fans may be eager to select Masalesa into the starting 11 for their team against Kaizer Chiefs on July 27 at FNB Stadium.
Masalesa will be happy to be part of the Pirates’ side that will be trying to win the Carling Black Label Cup for the third time in succession.
