A former Orlando Pirates attacker says that the club is struggling because the coaches don’t field their best players, such as Gabadinho Mhango.

Joseph Kamwendo strongly believes Mhango would have made a massive difference if he was given a fair shot as he is one of the ‘top strikers’ in the DStv Premiership.

“I feel Gabadinho could have at least got a fair chance like everyone else; he is a goal scorer,” Kamwendo told the Siya crew.

“When you look at Pirates, they struggle in front of goal; that’s the problem when they have to finish off the chances they create.”

Kamwendo, who played for Pirates between 2007 and 2011, also described the club’s season as ‘disappointing’ as they failed to win a trophy.

“With the expectations out there, Pirates have been very disappointing this season and looking at the squad they’ve got, one can say they have been poor because they didn’t win any trophy, but they are fighting for CAF Champions League spot,” he said.

“Pirates have the best squad in the league almost in every position, but the only problem I have seen is how they mix their team, and on matchday, you find a player that deserves to play on the stands or bench not given a chance to play.

“So for me, if Pirates are to go back to the winning ways in terms of trophies, they just have to play the best players in the right positions.”

Kamwendo would be pleased to hear that his compatriot, Mhango, looks set to join AmaZulu next season, as reported by the Siya crew.
