Light At The End Of The Tunnel For Pirates Midfielder?

Following Bongani Sam’s return to the starting line-up and his impressive performance for Orlando Pirates against Golden Arrows, another star is believed to be doing well to impress Josef Zinnbauer and his technical team.      

After missing out on a number of matches since his last appearance in November against his former club Baroka, Collins Makgaka is said to be putting his hand up for a possible return in Zinnbauer’s matchday squads in the coming matches.

Before his big move to Pirates in September, the 24-year-old attacking midfielder had spent almost three months without a club, having left Baroka at the end of June at the expiry of his contract and that is believed to have contributed to his slow start at the Buccaneers, according to sources.

“He’s been working on his fitness because of the time he spent without playing after leaving Baroka. But he’s worked very hard and is now on the same level as other players in the team. He’s been doing a lot of extra training on his own and trying to force his way back to the team and the coach has been impressed,” said the source.

Sources have indicated that Makgaka is committed to stay and fight for his place in the first year of his three-year deal with Bucs.
