FIFA Vote Mahamutsa Player Of The Week

Orlando Pirates defender Rooi Mahamutsa has been voted as the CAF Champions League Player of the Week, according to Fifa’s official website.

Mahamutsa has played a major role at Bucs this season with a number of inspired performances across all competitions and will no doubt be a valuable member of the starting 11 to take on Kaizer Chiefs in this weekend's Soweto Derby.

The 31-year-old central defender put Bucs 1-0 ahead against Esperance in the second leg semi-final clash of the CAF Champions League, although Esperance leveled matters through a clinical finish from Iheb Msakni.   

Mahamutsa being voted Fifa Player Of The Week is a major honour. The world football governing body gave the following explanation on their official website:

Player of the week

"In a star-studded Orlando Pirates side, Rooi Mahamutsa was an unlikely match-winner. Although the 31-year-old defender has twice come on as a substitute for Bafana Bafana, those games were both at least four years ago. Since then, Mahamutsa has been a solid worker in the back for the Buccaneers without making many headlines or being known for his goals. All of that changed on Saturday when he scored the vital away goal for Pirates in Tunisia with a powerful header from a corner. Although the home side equalised shortly afterwards, it was Mahamutsa's goal that saw the Sea Robbers through to their second final.”

Mahamutsa and the rest of his Bucs teammates take on Golden Arrows in the quarter-finals of the Telkom Knock-out this evening.
