Mpho Makola: I Know We Have Disappointed The Pirates Fans
Orlando Pirates’ Mpho Makola has revealed that he knows how much the team has disappointed the fans but vows to give their all in their remaining fixtures.
The Soweto giants experienced a disappointing run of form from the beginning of the current 2016/17 season and after more than one change to the team’s technical bench, the Buccaneers appear to have regained their confidence under the mentorship of Head Coach, Kjell Jonevret.
On April 11, Pirates claimed their first league victory since their 1-0 win over Chippa United last year, November 22.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with Soccer Laduma, Makola admitted that the Bucs are aware of how much they disappointed the supporters and has issued an apology to the Buccaneer faithful.
“I know we have disappointed our fans out there so far this season, but it’s football and these things happen to the best of teams in the world. One thing that they must know for sure is that we will never go onto the field of play and say that we are deliberately going to make the team lose. For the remainder of the games, we are going to give our all for this great club,” the 30-year-old told the Soccer Laduma.
“We would like to apologise to them and we know that this is a big year for us, with this being our 80th anniversary. So far, it has not been what we expected,” he added.
