TS Galaxy’s zakhele Lepasa, who scored the winning goal during the Nedbank cup final against Kaizer Chiefs says he is good enough to play for Orlando Pirates but he will wait for the team to decide on his future.
This is after a historic weekend that saw him win the cup’s player of the tournament award at the Premier League awards, beating Khama Billiat and Bernard Parker to the top prize.
“As a player I think I’m good enough to play for Orlando Pirates, but they will be the one to decide,” said Lepasa.
Lepasa was loaned to TS Galaxy from Pirates and his performance in the Nedbank tournament which saw him scoring 4 goals throughout the tournament will surely force the management at Pirates and coach Milutin Sredojevic to give him a chance during the 2019/20 season.
As a team he always supported from childhood, Lepasa said that he thought Kaizer Chiefs had a chance of winning the tournament, however the Amakhosi side failed to capitalise.
During the post-match interview, Lepasa said that after defender Teenage Hadebe fouled him inside the box when he attempt to score, he knew from that very moment that the game was as good as theirs, since there was not much time left on the clock.
“The goal means a lot for me and my family,” said Zakhele.
“Like I said during the build-up game, it was not by chance that we got to the final. A lot of people are happy and there will be a lot of changes because of this win,” he added.
