“He is one of the midfielders (and) he is fighting for the place in the team. When we get him in the shape that everyone knows him, as the Player of the Season last year, we shall, of course, use him and he will be a very important member of the squad,” Sredojevic told the media.

During the 2017/18 PSL campaign for Bucs, Nyatama made a staggering 27 starts in his first season with the club, which was the highest numbers of appearances by any player in Sredojevic’s team.
