Qalinge On Restoring The Pride Of Bucs’ Badge
Thabo Qalinge Puts Emphasis On Restoring Pride For Orlando Pirates
Orlando Pirates winger, Thabo Qalinge, has emphasised the importance of playing for the club’s badge, as he and his teammates aim to bring back the glory days of winning matches and trophies to the side.
Qalinge is one of the players that have been on form for Bucs in the early stages of this season under Milutin Sredojevic. Speaking to Soccer Laduma, Qalinge has explained why it is important for the team to play for the Pirates badge.
“Honestly, we always play for the club’s badge even if we don’t say it. You won’t believe the work rate we put into ensuring that we do well on the field. We haven’t won anything uma sikhuluma iqiniso (to be honest), so we can’t get carried away by the good start. We still need to work harder for the team to ensure that we keep getting good results and improving our game. We continue to play for the badge and also to restore the pride of the badge. Everyone knows that we had a terrible season kulonyaka odlule (last year) and we have to make sure to do better this time around,” said Qalinge.
In issue 1042 of Soccer Laduma, Qalinge talks about the good start for Pirates, the need to make the supporters happy and what it means to play for Pirates, among other topics.
