Cape Town - Orlando Pirates striker, Lennox Bacela, says leaving the Soweto giants is not an option despite limited game time during the 2014/ 15 season.

Bacela made just seven starts for Pirates in the PSL this season, and made five sub appearances, scoring two goals in the twelve matches he was involved in.

“I have a contract with Pirates and again, I get on very well with the coach Eric Tinkler,” Bacela told Sports24.

“The only option I have is to work harder and regain my place in the team.”

The former Bloemfontein Celtic striker said he is still happy at Pirates, despite seeing little game time this past season.

“I just have to work harder to play regularly and my case will be helped by the fact that I have a good working relationship with the coach,” said Bacela.

“It’s not even in my mind to want to leave Pirates and search for game time somewhere else. I’m enjoying myself at this team and will remain with the club.”
