Orlando Pirates winger, Khethokwakhe Masuku, says although he is content to be a regular fixture in the Bucs starting eleven, his best is still to come.
After enduring some tough times on the bench since joining Pirates from Black Leopards, Masuku has become a regular in the Bucs team and has done well for the Buccaneers so far.
“I learnt a good lesson at Pirates. You can have all the skills in the world and be a great player, but here at Pirates you have to have a lot more than that to survive. It is a big team so, you have to have a big heart,” Masuku told the official Pirates website.
“I know myself – I know what I can do on the field. I had to change something in me. I changed my attitude to start off with. I could not sit in the corner and feel sorry for myself because I was not playing. I waited for my chance and I think I have done well so far,” added Masuku.
The Soweto-born winger said he doesn’t pay attention to criticism.
“Everything I do on the field is to help the team, so, if it didn’t work, I tell myself I should not get worried but try harder next time.
“That has helped me to develop this tough skin I have now. I do not take things personally anymore. I told myself to be bold and not let things get to me. If I play, I do my best and I make sure I am happy with my game," concluded Masuku.
