Orlando Pirates’ man of the moment, Vincent Pule says he joined at the right time

Published on

Orlando Pirates midfielder Vincent Pule believes his move to the Sea Robbers from Bidvest Wits in the off season came at the right time in his career.

The 26-year-old winger has been impressive in his first few months at the Soweto giants.Over the weekend, he netted his third goal in nine games in the 2-1 victory over Baroka.

Pule admitted that he has had to dig deep to cement his place in Milutin Sredojevic’s side because talent alone is never enough playing for a big team like Pirates.

“I think I came to Pirates at the right time, I came here to improve and to play for the club with a big heart,” Pule said.

Pule further stated that playing for the Soweto giants requires character and spirit.

“I think Pirates is a big team and you must have a big heart to succeed here. I told myself that with talent alone you will not go anywhere, but you have to work hard.”

The QwaQwa-born attacker also confirmed what Assistant Coach Rhulani Mokwena had said about his extra commitment.

“You have to train hard and do extra work and I think that is what has worked for me. I also told myself to take the opportunity handed to me with both hands.”

Pule’s recent arrival at Pirates has already helped earn him a place in the Bafana Bafana squad that did duty against Libya in Durban earlier this month. The 26-year-old’s consistent form since then makes him likely to be named in the squad Stuart Baxter will be announcing on 1 October 2018.
