Bucs’ Shonga: I Have To Repay That Faith

The striker netted Bucs’ first goal in their 2-0 win over Platinum Stars at the weekend.

Thembinkosi Lorch scored the other goal for Milutin Sredojevic’s side.

“I’m pleased to finally be off the mark for my team. It feels really good because I’ve been working hard and pushing myself. My teammates have also been pushing me and the coaches have shown faith in me by giving me game-time so I just had to deliver. I’m very happy,” the forward commented on Bucs’ official website.  

Shonga has heaped praised on Sredojevic and his technical team for his progress.

“The coaches are good because when they show trust they go all in. They constantly tell me that ‘I can do it’ and they back that up by giving me the opportunity. I have to repay that faith with my performances. I’ve settled down well into the new surroundings and have quickly adapted to the team’s style of play, thanks largely to them,” said the 21-year-old.

A very good intelligent player. Only some individual players up front are showing that they do have jealous in passing the ball to you. I am sure the coach will quickly talk to the whole team. People like Memela must know what a team work means in soccer. We are drawing a lot of games because of this kind of a heart.lets play for the team not just for people to see you alone. We win as a team If Justin Shonga was supplied by two passes from Memela I am sure we could have won by 7:0

Keep it up my hunk but please talk to that Memela to pass u the ball. He ignores u in many instances. Me thinks he's scared of u shining. If he doesn't change this selfish and spiteful behavior, he'll join Morrison in the stands :((

I didn't believe this policeman was capable of scoring a goal, even against the weakest team in the league. This is a bad omen for platinum star, they may kiss the league a goodbye.
