Orlando Pirates’ Justin Shonga is happy to have scored his first goal for the club.
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.
