Cape Town - Giorgi Nergadze's career at Bidvest Wits has been severely hampered by injury and the Georgian says he will have to be patient for his chance in the first team.

The midfielder has made only four first-team appearances since joining the Clever Boys, with his last game coming in August last year.

Nergadze is keen to make an impact for Wits, but admits it is difficult for the coach to make changes to the team when they are playing so well.

“I had too many injuries at the end of August ranging from groin to calf and was only back in full training at the end of November," he told KickOff.

“I am back now but the challenge is that the team is doing well so I really have to learn to be patient.

“Though I am not used to this situation it is understandable when the coach doesn't want to change his winning team.

“It is really tough for me but I have to hold on and just make sure that I am ready when I get my chance.

“I will obviously also make sure that I do my best when the chance to play arrives again,” says Nergadze.

The versatile 32-year-old is a useful weapon for Bidvest Wits if he can avoid further injury as he is able to provide cover for the defense as well as play in midfield.
