Nyatama hails Micho revolution
Midfielder playing his ‘best games’ under Bucs coach
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.
