Cape Town - Orlando Pirates central midfielder Musa Nyatama says he is thriving in the positive atmosphere at the club, and is looking forward to playing CAF Champions League football in 2018/19.
The box-to-box midfielder has been in sparkling form for the Sea Robbers and was an instrumental component in Bucs' resurgence under head Milutin Sredojevic, as well as his assistant Rulani Mokwena.
The 30-year-old helped the Mayfair-based outfit secure second spot in the Premiership through a number of fine Man-of-the-Match displays. In addition, he has tallied four league goals as well as countless assists during the current campaign.
As such, the Benoni-born star takes the view that Pirates coaching staff and technical team deserve credit for the success, and he awaits Champions League competition with great excitement.
He told Soccer Laduma: "I always believed that for a footballer expression comes in the form of the football you play. Players who are enjoying themselves play good football.
"I'm simply enjoying my football at Pirates, this is the perfect team for me and I already can’t wait for the new season. We have qualified for the Champions League and this is a new challenge I want to be part of.
"If you look at the other players you can see they are enjoying themselves. The likes of Luvuyo (Memela) and Mpho (Makola), Innocent Maela and other players.
"There is a lot of us here who are enjoying their football at the club and that has been the driving force in how we have turned things around.
"It’s very difficult to single out a player from this team because we have all played well. For me this is the hallmark of a good team.
"When you have several players all playing well and scoring goals its good for the team. We have to make sure that next season we come back stronger and better."
