Nyatama: Pre-Season Is Competitive

Orlando Pirates star Musa Nyatama has told Soccer Laduma that he feels good to be back and preparing for the season ahead.

The crew reported that the Buccaneers had reported back from their time off as the players begin preparations in the pre-season.

“It feels good to be back, for us the season has begun as we get ready for the pre-season preparations that are going to help us for when the season begins,” Nyatama told the crew.

“We know that the technical team has a busy pre-season for us. Pre-season is the most exciting and competitive time of the season. As players, we want to show the coach who he needs to consider when it comes to selection. 

“Also, there are new arrivals and new faces at the club, so everyone wants to do their best.”

The 30-year-old midfielder ended the past 2017/18 season as one of the club’s top performers in only his first season and said that he was determined to keep the momentum. 

“My first season was a good one. It’s about improving on that now and getting better. At a big club, there’s no room to drop your guard. If you had a good season, then you must have a better season and keep improving on that,” he added.

Meanwhile, the crew has reported on some of the changes within Bucs’ technical staff, by roping in former Swansea City man, Andrew Sparkes, as their new goalkeeper coach.
