Bucs’ Nigerian Keeper Eyeing Strong Season Start

Orlando Pirates Goalkeeper Wanting To Make Impact

By Soccer Laduma - Jul 12, 2017 02:07 PM

Orlando Pirates goalkeeper, Emmanuel Daniel, is focused on having a bright start to the 2017/18 season, having completed the first few months of his time with the club.

The Nigerian shot stopper was signed by Pirates earlier this year, following an impressive trial he had with the club.

However, the player whose goalkeeping talent caught the attention of the observers at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Brazil, had the start of his Bucs’ career delayed this past season.

While he was selected to Bucs’ 18-man match day squads in some of the games, including against Mamelodi Sundowns and Bloemfontein Celtic in May, he wasn’t given a run by Kjell Jonevret and his technical team.

With the Carling Black Label Cup coming up later this month for Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs, Daniel is said to be looking forward to a chance to make his debut for Bucs, should the fans vote for him to play.

“Emmanuel Daniel is looking forward to playing his first game for Orlando Pirates. He has been working hard in training. He has been impressive and it’s just that the team wasn’t doing very well, which is why his debut wasn’t rushed.

“Having played and done well for Nigeria at the Rio Olympics for the world to see, he is confident that Pirates fans will want to see him play for their team,” said the source.

Lol this guy bringing hopes to some Pirates fans. Let me remind them that the cow at Chippa United is being preferred as the best goalkeeper in Nigeria ahead of this guy. This guy been a free agent since last season. You have goalkeepers like Masuluke playing games and people think there's a theres a free quality goalkeeper out there.

Hope he will be our saviour next season.Khona must sign good defenders and get rid of the ones that we have at the moment.A goalkeeper is as good as his defence.With aboJele at the helm we are in for another disastrous season

@lejapapii I second u Bru, once an enemy always an enemy. Fernandez can't try to beat us n expect to be friend with us, he is a betrayer jst as that.

@lejapapii my Champ pls let's put faith in this boy, he's real deal.He's better in almost every goalkeeping skills.To prove that the The late Stephen Keshi had him in his squad n now he's still there with the current Nigerian coach. Not every player can be in the Nigerian team coached by the late Stephen Keshi.
