Pirates’ Ncikazi On Pule: We Must Make A Tough Choice

Orlando Pirates’ Mandla Ncikazi has provided the latest update on Vincent Pule who has been out since the first round of the season due to injury. 

During the course of the week, as Pirates have been preparing for today’s CAF Confederation Cup match against Simba SC of Tanzania, the Siya crew reported that a comeback for Pule was imminent after a social media post under his name confirmed that the winger had been getting ready for his return to the pitch, having recently returned to training with the rest of the team after his long injury lay-off.

Speaking to the media in previewing this evening’s clash set for the Orlando Stadium, Ncikazi hinted that Pule is unlikely to feature against Simba as the technical team prefers to take a cautious approach on how the 30-year-old will be introduced back into the line-ups.

“Pule is making progress, but I think it will be premature to play him in such a high tempo game while we will really want to win having our best players. I don’t think he is in a position when he hasn’t played not even a single full training match. He is in that position where we must make a tough choice but maybe we chose to go for safety,” said Ncikazi, speaking to journalists.
