Thabang Monare Doesn’t Want Orlando Pirates to Rest on Their Laurels! The box-to-box midfielder made his debut for the Buccaneers in the Soweto Derby. Monare played his first game in approximately 2 months on Saturday.
Thabang Monare made his debut for Orlando Pirates in the Soweto Derby. He had not played football since the finals game of last season for Bidvest Wits.
His fitness levels were not compromised though, as he put in an astute performance for the club. He was keen for Orlando Pirates to maintain focus for upcoming fixtures.
“It feels good to be off the mark for my new club but more importantly, it is great to get the win.
“I haven’t played competitive football in a while so obviously my match fitness for the competitive games is not where I want it but it’s getting there.” Monare told orlandopiratesfc.com.
“We are happy with the result on Saturday and I want to give credit to my team mates for making my debut a dream start, but we are well aware of the fact that the tie isn’t over yet, which is why we are not going to get ahead of ourselves.
“With the season so jam packed, there’s little time to dwell on Saturday’s result, the games are coming thick and fast and we have already shifted our minds to the next match against Celtic on Wednesday.”
