Bucs' Mbele: Promoting Young Players Is About Timing

Floyd Mbele talks about the promotion of Lyle Foster and Siphumelele Mbulu

By Soccer Laduma - Feb 22, 2018 06:48 PM
Orlando Pirates Administrative Manager Floyd Mbele has told Soccer Laduma that timing is the central pillar of the Soweto giant’s policy when it comes to promoting young players to the senior team. 
 
 
The crew reported several days ago that the Buccaneers had promoted yet another talented youngster to their senior ranks. Siphumelele Mbulu a 19-year-old midfielder who was part of the Orlando Pirates Project-X tour to England in 2017 has followed in the steps of teammate Lyle Foster in making the grade to join the club’s elite.
 
“As a team, our philosophy when it comes to bringing the younger players into the senior ranks revolves around timing,” Mbele told Soccer Laduma.
 
“Football is about cycles so when we decide as a club to promote players, the conditions have to be ideal. You don’t want to bring a player into a situation where the team is under pressure. This often breaks players, so we are very conscious of this. 
 
 
“Both Lyle and Siphumelele are exceptional players and we couldn’t be happier as management in seeing their progress through the ranks of the club. However, our technical team has also been cautious in how much they get exposed in their young careers and will continue doing so until they and other young players in our development teams become established professionals,” concluded the Bucs administrative head.
 
Mbulu will hope to emulate the good form displayed by his U-20 teammate Foster who already has nine league appearances and one goal to his name.

is fielding an underperforming gabuza also about timing? you're the last person to talk about team improvement. last season the team survived relegation, maybe 'timing' is synonymous to favouritism to u mr floyd!
