Mthethwa looking to gain valuable experience on loan

Cape Town - Sandile Mthethwa says he is inspired by the examples of other Orlando Pirates loanees that have eventually broken into the Buccanneers' first team.

Innocent Maela (Thanda Royal Zulu), Thembinkosi Lorch (Chippa United) and Mthokozisi Dube (Bloemfontein Celtic) have all flourished after their loan spells and broken into the first team at the Sea Robbers upon their return.

This gives Mthethwa, who is on loan at Chippa United, hope. But the 22-year-old admits that he still needs to gain more experience of regular first-team football in the PSL.

"Going out on loan is part of football, I did not take it badly. I accepted it. I always hope one day I will return to the team and play week in, week out," Mthethwa told Sowetan.

"It won't be easy playing in the top flight for the first time in my career; the leagues are not the same. I have vast experience of playing in the NFD, but I still have to learn a lot of things now that I am in PSL.

"Yeah, the club always loan out players, and we have seen what has happened to those players, so it is very much motivating."
