Cape Town - Orlando Pirates midfielder Menzi Masuku is hoping to improve his game and get more match next season time under new first team coach Muhsin Ertugral.
Masuku started just seven Premiership fixtures last season, with another eight appearances as a substitute, and the 23-year-old admitted he can still improve significantly.
"As a player you aren't there until you reach your highest point," Masuku told Vodacom Soccer.
"There is always room for improvement. I always try to improve my game in each and every way that I can.
"I always ask for advice from other players as well. I try to learn from other players. I still have a lot to learn. Hopefully I will reach my peak soon.
"I was disappointed with my season. I was hoping to get as much game time as I could since I ended the previous season on a good note. I thought that everything would go accordingly.
"But, unfortunately, there are things that you don't have control over and decide how they pan out. I just have to keep working hard and prove myself again."
Former head coach Eric Tinkler was sacked following a trophyless 2015/16 campaign and replaced with Ertugral, who led Mpumalanga Black Aces to an impressive fourth place, and the Masuku is hoping for a new lease of life under the Turkish coach.
"It's a good thing that everyone will start afresh with the new coach at Pirates. I am looking forward to the season.
"It was a surprise to many of us to see Muhsin joining the club. He is a good coach who believes in young players which excites," Masuku concluded.
