De Sa Explains Motshegwa’s Absence

New Orlando Pirates signing Jacky Motshegwa’s absence from the match day squads, has raised questions as to whether the former Bloemfontein Celtic midfielder is in Roger de Sa plans.

Motshegwa joined Pirates from Celtic during the current transfer period, but, unlike other new recruits like Lennox Bacela and Kermit Erasmus, Motshegwa is yet to play an official game for Pirates this season.

His absence from the match day squad has raised speculation about his future at Pirates, but Pirates coach Roger de Sa says Motshegwa is pretty much in his plans for this season.

“The problem is that I have players who are performing well in his position, so I can’t just change my squad just to accommodate him, it doesn’t work like that. He needs to be patient and continue to work hard at training and he’ll get his chance,” said De Sa.

“It is the same for the other fringe players. They need to continue to work and they’ll get a chance to play. We’re playing in so many competition and players get injured or suspended, so there’s always a chance to play,” added De Sa.
