Or­lando Pi­rates mid­fielder Musa Ny­atama, 30, has hailed Mi­cho Sre­do­je­vic as one of the best coaches he’s worked with in his ca­reer.

The for­mer Bloem­fontein Celtic player is show­ing signs he can do well for the Buc­ca­neers this sea­son.

Ny­atama, who was man of the match in their 1-0 win over Ajax Cape Town at Or­lando Sta­dium on Tues­day, told Sowe­tan that he be­lieves he can take his game to the next level un­der the Ser­bian.

“He’s one of the best coaches I’ve ever worked with and, yeah, I’m en­joy­ing my­self work­ing un­der him,” he said.

Ny­atama has worked with coaches such as Gor­don Ige­sund at Mar­itzburg, Dutch­man Jo­han Neeskens and Pitso Mosi­mane at Mamelo- di Sun­downs and Clin­ton Larsen at Bloem­fontein Celtic.

Re­flect­ing on his best player award on the night, the Benoni-born mid­fielder said he’s giv­ing it his all to the Soweto gi­ants.

“It wasn’t easy, but I made it a point that I stamped my au­thor­ity. I played my nor­mal game [against Ajax],” he said.

“I worked very hard last sea­son and com­ing to Pi­rates, I’m mak­ing it a point that I also work very hard and prove a point that I’m also one of the best players in South Africa.

“There are so many qual­ity players around me here at Pi­rates and I’m able to play my best foot­ball,” he said.

Ny­atama will face his for­mer side Mar­itzburg at Harry Gwala Sta­dium to­mor­row (8pm), and as much as Fadlu Davids’ charges are un­beaten too, Ny­atama said he ex­pects a win in KwaZulu-Natal.

“We are pulling through as a team, as a unit, and we are tak­ing it one game at a time. It won’t be an easy game. We must col­lect max­i­mum points as much as it won’t be easy,” Ny­atama said.
