Back With A Bang, Memela Talks Goalscoring On Bucs Return

Luvuyo Memela has spoken about scoring a goal on his full return for Orlando Pirates after a long injury lay-off. 

The winger, who was handed a start in coach Milutin Sredojevic’s team against AmaZulu at the weekend, marked his full return for the Soweto giants by scoring one of the goals as Bucs defeated Usuthu 4-1 at the Orlando Stadium on Saturday.

Against SuperSport United prior to the AmaZulu match, after he returned from a knee injury, Memela came on as a second half substitute as Bucs lost 1-0 at the Mbombela Stadium last Wednesday.  

“It is great to be back on the playing field. It’s been a long time since I last played. Coming back to the starting line-up and scoring is what dreams are all about,” Memela told Pirates’ official website.

“Any player will attest to this, but there is nothing nice about (an) injury and the process of returning from that situation. It’s not only the physical demand of rehabilitation that gets to you but also the mental part. You train alone while your teammates train on the field and secondly, because we are not robots, the rehabilitation process isn’t straightforward – you sometimes suffer setbacks which delays your return. All this puts a lot of pressure on a player,” said the 31-year-old.
