Cape Town - Former Orlando Pirates striker Phumudzo Manenzhe believes winger Thabo Qalinge should embrace his role as super-sub for the Buccaneers.

Manenzhe believes the 25-year-old works well as an impact player during games in which Pirates need a late spark.

It remains to be seen how new coach Muhsin Ertugral will utilise players like Qalinge next season.

"For me, Qalinge he has to be given a special role. I think for Qalinge when he is sitting on the bench he is one of those players that is focusing on the game looking for the gaps and something to exploit," Manenzhe told Goal website.

"I think when he starts the game he looks a bit lost, he doesn't have enough time to lead and take on the opposition.

"So he is better for me coming on as an impact player because in the early stages of the game you need those hard workers like Memela, who is hard-running and also impacts the game.

"So I think Qalinge he has got that ability to impact the game from the bench and also when he comes on when he comes on from the bench, he really utilises the gaps."
