Bucs Legend Calls For Inspiration In Pirates Midfield

Orlando Pirates legendary midfielder, John 'Dungi' Moeti, has called for more inspiration within the Orlando Pirates midfield.
 
According to the Bucs legend, the Soweto giants have failed to play with the same innovation and enterprise of years gone by. 
 
 
Speaking to Soccer Laduma, the 50-year-old former Pirates and Bafana Bafana midfield man attributed the Buccaneers recent performances to a lack of creativity in the midfield.   
 
"Orlando Pirates have always played with strong and enterprising midfielders, however, in recent years this has not been the case," Dungi tells Soccer Laduma. 
 
"If you look back, Pirates' midfield has been graced by players such as Steve Lekoelea, Benedict Vilakazi and most recently the likes of Andile Jali and Oupa Manyisa. When they've had players who can influence the game like these the team has gone on to win the league and some cups but we have not seen that in the current Pirates squad. 
 
"There are some good players in the current team such as Mpho Makola and Thabo Rakhale but unfortunately they have not been doing well on a consistent basis and this has affected the team. Milutin Sredojević will have to inspire his current midfielders and possibly look at bolstering his squad with enterprising players who can help Pirates regain their former glory," added Moeti.  
 
 
In a bid to strengthen their midfield ranks the Buccaneers have since added the likes of Thamsanqa Sangweni and Musa Nytama Thembinkosi Lorch who has been loaned out to various clubs. 
 
This season Pirates performances see them currently lie in the sixth spot after 11 league fixture having won only three, drawn six and losing twice.
