Bucs Striker: I Still Want More
Orlando Pirates Striker Eyeing More Goals
Orlando Pirates striker, Thamsanqa Gabuza, says he wants to score more goals for the team in their upcoming matches.
Gabuza is currently on three goals that he scored for Pirates in the league so far this season. Despite his impressive form, which included the two goals he scored in the 2-2 draw with Polokwane City before the FIFA international break, Gabuza says he feels bad to have scored only three goals in six games.
“Eish, mfethu (my brother), on my side, I feel very bad as a striker of Orlando Pirates to have scored only three goals in six games, but one step at a time. I’m learning. I still want more, but I won’t put myself under pressure and promise that I’ll score how many goals or I’ll play how many games. If I continue to work the way the technical team wants me to work, I will achieve my goals,” the striker told Soccer Laduma.
‘Gandaganda’, as the 30-year-old is known in football circles, has refused to set a target for the goals he aims to score this season.
“I won’t set a target. But what I can say is that I’m still cooking. There are a lot of people who are helping me with the right ingredients and spices for this food that I’m cooking. One of those people is the coach (Milutin Sredojevic). He always advises me on areas to improve on every day. He tells me that the way I train should be the way that I play. It’s an honour and a privilege to work with a coach of his calibre. He has qualified a national team for the AFCON and that says something about him,” explained Gabuza.
An exclusive interview with Gabuza is in edition 1044 of Soccer Laduma.
