Cape Town - Former Orlando Pirates man Andries Sebola has backed Abbubaker Mobara to form a defensive partnership alongside Ghanian Edwin Gyimah.

The 22-year-old joined the Mayfair-based outfit on a three-year deal and questions have been raised as to which position the U23 international will play for the Soweto giants.

Speaking to website, Sebola said that Mobara should partner Gyimah in the central defense as he believes that Ayanda Gcaba is the 'weakest link' in the Bucs' defence.

"I think he will partner with Gyimah because Gcaba, as much as he has been playing quite a lot of games for Pirates, he is their weakest link," he said.

"Many people don't notice that. He doesn't cover. He doesn't mark tightly. He is always ball-watching. If you can see most of the goals Pirates conceded last season, it was through Gcaba's mistakes.

"So if they can partner Gyimah and Mobara, I think it's going to be a good combination,"  

Mobara was added to Muhsin Ertugral's squad in a bid to bolster their defensive ranks, with the former Ajax Cape Town man set to compete with the likes of Happy Jele, Rooi Mahamutsa, Ntsikelelo Nyauza, Gcaba and Gyimah.
