Bitter-Sweet Return For Sangweni

Orlando Pirates defender, Siyabonga Sangweni, has admitted that he had a bitter-sweet return to the team after Bucs lost 1-0 to Mpumalanga Black Aces on Wednesday night.

After months of absence due to an injury, Sangweni made his return to the Pirates starting line-up last night, but could not inspire the Buccaneers to a victory over Aces.

“I am happy to start playing again, but it is also not nice for me because we lost the match. Nothing went our way but football is like this sometimes,” Sangweni told the official Pirates website.

“We must work hard on those mistakes we made in the game. Now we have to look ahead and try to win our next game. It is not nice to lose games at home, but there is nothing we can do after the game - we lost, now we must concentrate and look ahead,” added Sangweni.

Meanwhile, goalkeeper Fatau Dauda, who failed to keep a clean sheet on his return to the Bucs starting eleven following Senzo Meyiwa’s suspension, said Pirates needed to make less mistakes in the future.

“We made a mistake on the wall – as a goalkeeper you put up a solid wall to protect the goal. The shot was low and the guys on the wall jumped, which is normal sometimes, but it was difficult for me to go back and save the ball. Football is like this. We have to make fewer mistakes in the future," commented Dauda.

Pirates next game is against SuperSport United at Lucas Moripe Stadium on Saturday.
