Cape Town - Orlando Pirates midfielder Mpho Makola admits that last season was good for him on a personal level as a footballer.

Although the Buccaneers did not fare well in the 2015/16 campaign, Makola was satisfied with his own contribution.

The 30-year-old was joint top-scorer for Pirates with 10 goals alongside Tendai Ndoro, and contributed seven assists.

Makola also made his debut for Bafana Bafana after consistent displays with Soweto giants.

"I think it has been a good season for us, although we do not have anything to show for it," Makola told Goal website.

"But I think as a team we did well. I have just come out of my best season as an individual. I think I did well overall.

"My hard work is starting to pay dividends and I am happy that I gave it my best. I tried to help the team where I could and I am content with my efforts.

"I also got called up to the national team and also scored on debut. So, I was impressed with how I did, although I feel that as a team we could've done much better."
