Midfielder “Pirates” wants to score a goal



Orlando Pirates linebacker Goodman Mosele insists the most important thing for the club at the start of the DStv Premier League season is to be deadly up front and use your chances to score a goal.

Mosele thinks the Pirates have a good team that can compete with any team, but adds that they first need to solve last season’s problem of scoring goals.

The Bucks will host Swallows in their season opener at Orlando Stadium on Saturday, and Mosele says they’ll have to showcase the hard work they’ve put in preseason in this game.

“We play very good football and I think we have the right players to do the job. The only thing we lacked was to score as many goals as possible. If you look at last season, I think we did well, our game was good and in some games we just didn’t score goals,” said the Pirates and Bafana Bafana midfielder.

“But that’s what we’re working on. The pre-season was great and we knew as a team what we needed to work on and improve as a team. We tirelessly prepared for the start of the season. Every session has been tough and what I like and what I have seen from the coach is that he wants us to dominate our games. So, this is what we are going to do, dominate, entertain and win in our games. I think everyone in the team is ready and looking at the friendlies we’ve played, I think we’re ready for our first game of the season.”

“Competition for the starting XI will be very tough. There are a lot of good midfield players at the club and we all push each other to succeed,” Mosele concluded.
