"Ovono Will Never Get A Chance Again”

Former Orlando Pirates midfielder, Steve Lekoelea, has weighed in on the goalkeeping selection dilemma at the Buccaneers.

Ertugral And Gyimah - What Really Happened

Fans and critics are divided over who should be first choice in between the posts at the Mayfair-based outfit, with Brighton Mhlongo starting in goal for two games under Muhsin Ertugral and Ovono starting the other two, and now Lekoelea has expressed his opinion, saying Mhlongo should be considered ahead of the Equatorial Guinea international.

“I think the goalkeeper situation is complicated. (Brighton) Mhlongo is doing well and I even thought he was the man of the match against Chiefs (in the Black Label Cup), because he made some good saves. I think Mhlongo should start, I think he was doing well.”

On the other hand, the 37-year-old has said that Ovono’s mistakes in goal will have cost him his place in the team and he doesn’t foresee a return to action for the 23-year-old.

“(Felipe) Ovono isn’t doing so well and I don’t think he’ll get a chance,” he continued. “Remember, he messed up in his first game and he’ll never get a chance again, because if you play and you get your chance, you won’t get it again.”
