Makola: I Know We Have Disappointed The Pirates Fans

Mpho Makola: I Know We Have Disappointed The Pirates Fans

By Soccer Laduma - Apr 20, 2017 05:46 PM

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.

Khoza has been the biggest disappointment of them all....had he hired a decent coach after Muhsins departure, we wouldn't find ourselves in this situation....I can never forgive that old man for all the torture he has put us through in the past decade....I'm waiting for the day this curse of a chairman retires and more ambitious people take over

if makola was to be on a transfare list today i m sure not even a single club in sa will not enquire about his services, one must not allow their hatred for pirates to cloud their judgment. makola is a brilliant player finish. I support pirates but that doesn't stop me from marveling at other teams great players, some bloggers here are just too immature for objective opinions

Mr makola pirates player's words are very encouraging in interviews however this never translates to the field of play, why is that?

@The Ghost himself they're broke. I think Pirates get 70% from Vodacom because Pirates is a big team in africa. Not these minnows they deserve 30%

@lejapapii let Mpanzees enjoy our downfall, as for me I don't care what chimpanzee or a zebra says, as a Buccaneer I always had that love for Mamelodi Sundowns since I was a kid and I will continue with that till Bobby breaks the bank for Serero... as for now mpanzees must just enjoy our downfall and make their noise, but we don't know what next season's got for us,, so no zebra nor mpanzee can tell me which team to support
