Johannesburg - Orlando Pirates coach Roger de Sa expressed his delight for Happy Jele after the defender scored on his return against Black Leopards on Wednesday night.
According to soccerladuma website
, the Sea Robbers thumped Lidoda Duvha 4-0 in a Premiership tie at Peter Mokaba Stadium, with substitute Jele scoring the fourth goal with his first touch of the game in Polokwane.
Jele, who netted with a header, was making his return from a career-threatening knee injury he sustained against De Sa's former employers Bidvest Wits a year ago.
"I'm especially delighted for Jele," said De Sa in a post-match interview.
"It's great to see him back after having a tough year and for him to get a goal with his first touch is fantastic."
Regarding his team's display, De Sa said: "We were in control. It was a good performance with some great goals. We had a lot of chances and knocked the ball around.
"I'm delighted with our depth," he added.
