Tlhomelang Reveals His Concerns About Pirates

Former Orlando Pirates defender, Lucas Tlhomelang, has revealed what is worrying him about the current team as they prepare to take on SuperSport United in their next Absa Premiership match.

Against Matsatsantsa, the Buccaneers will play their sixth match without a win in all competitions.

In their previous match, Milutin Sredojevic’s side lost 2-0 to Esperance de Tunis in Tunisia last Tuesday.

Tlhomelang has explained his concerns, as Bucs have seemed to be struggling with form in recent games. 

“Pirates is worrying, and the way I see things, the game against SuperSport United will not be easy for them. I’m worried for Pirates. After the Soweto Derby, we (Pirates) went to play in Tunisia in the Champions League and lost, and after watching both games, I am worried about the central defence of Pirates,” said Tlhomelang.

The 42-year-old has explained why he thinks the centre-back pairing of captain Happy Jele and new signing Alfred Ndengane has not been functional for Sredojevic’s team.

“The way I see it, the combination for Happy Jele and Ndengane isn’t working. They haven’t clicked yet. The goal they conceded from a set-piece against Esperance justifies what I am saying. The guys were caught ball watching and I don’t know if they are tired or what. Maybe they are struggling with the system Pirates is playing, I don’t know. I don’t know what’s happening but I think there is a problem at the back,” added the former defender.
