Johannesburg - Orlando Pirates midfielder Khethowakhe Masuku has revealed his desire to get regular game time in the Soweto giants’ colours.
Masuku was speaking after their goalless stalemate against the University of Pretoria last Friday.
Masuku has been on the sidelines for the most of the 2014/15 campaign, but his presence in the Buccaneers’ last league encounter showed that the 29-year-old winger is hungry to keep his place in the starting line-up.
“Bherezza” also admitted that he could have done a lot better if he was not lacking a regular game time.
The former Black Leopards player also hinted that his performance has sent a strong message to the technical team that they needhim more than ever.
“I always try my best in each game but the game (against Tuks) didn’t go as I expected due to lack of game time,” said Masuku.
“But all in all we did well as a team and I was quite encouraged by it because I think the team needed me most.
“And looking at my work-rate, the chances I got and the creativity that is within me, we can all see that the team really needs me.
“That’s what is in me, God gave me this talent to use and nothing or no-one can take that away from me.
“I want to show people that I’m still here and I still have what it takes to be here.
“I’m still the same player who everyone knows and I guess I’ll have to put more and more effort in the future games,” he added.
Masuku will be looking to keep his momentum going when the Buccaneers host SuperSport United at Orlando Stadium on Wednesday.
Kick-off is at 19:30.
