Orlando Pirates striker Bienvenu Eva Nga has backed himself that “everything will be fine” despite having suffered a few boos from the Soweto giants faithful.
Nga, who joined Pirates from Chippa United during the off season, has not had an easy start at the club, with some fans booing in the last two matches.
However, coach Jose Riveiro was unperturbed by the boos, though he took the bustling striker off in the 59th minute and replaced him with Ben Motshwari.
“If I want to be respected, I need to make my story and I know I’m going to do it because I have confidence in me,” said Eva Nga via Pirates TV on YouTube.
“I know who I’m and the player I’m. I know everything will be fine.”
“I’ll keep working hard, listen to the coaches, and respect everyone, even the person who is giving me clothes at the club.”
Nga, who has scored only once in seven matches in all competitions for Pirates, was a hit last season for Chippa, scoring 10 goals in the league.
With Pirates at the top of the Dstv Premiership table with 11 points after six matches, one ahead of defending champions Mamelodi Sundowns who have a game in hand, Nga says they want to make history this season.
“We have a quality in the team, we can win the league,” the tall striker added.
“We can win many things and leave history. If we win, your name will be there forever and no one will remove your name there and that is what I want to do.
“When I leave here, I want people to say ‘let’s check the trophies the team won’. They will see the 2022-23 season, Eva Nga’s name is there.”
Pirates will look to cement their top spot in the standing when they visit Maritzburg United at Harry Gwala Stadium on Sunday at 17:30.
However, they will be without Goodman Mosele, who was sent off against Royal AM.
