Former Orlando Pirates striker, Jerry Sikhosana, has said that Orlando Pirates’ need more than one man’s name on the scoresheet, with Tendai Ndoro scoring all of the club’s goals so far this season.
Pirates have had a positive start to their Absa Premiership campaign, with wins over Golden Arrows and Ajax Cape Town, where the Zimbabwean striker netted all five goals. However, Sikhosana has said that there need to be more players contributing towards the goals, in case Ndoro gets marked out of the game.
“People will start noticing (Tendai) Ndoro’s performances. But I think the players, especially the South African players, need to come to the party, because he’s scored all five goals, which is not on for a team like Pirates,” he told Soccer Laduma. “It must be a team that compliments him. If he gets shut down, somebody must be assigned to look after him. Who else is going to score goals?
“For me, it’s a worrying factor. As much as he’s scoring, other people need to come to the party as well.”
Sikhosana went on to discuss today’s game against Cape Town City, saying that it will be difficult for former Bucs coach, Eric Tinkler to keep his players motivated after a difficult set of results.
“It’s going to be an interesting tie for him (Tinkler),” he continued. “After a good showing where they beat Polokwane City 2-0 and beating Kaizer Chiefs in the MTN8, but then losing to Bidvest Wits and Golden Arrows, it will be difficult for him to motivate the players.”
