Khoza holds key to Lekgwathi's retirement

Orlando Pirates stalwart Lucky Lekgwathi waits on Irvin Khoza over his future

Posted: 23 February 2011 Time: 11:17 am

Orlando Pirates stalwart Lucky Lekgwathi says that it was up to club chairman Irvin Khoza to tell him when to hang up his boots. 

"Retirement will have wait for the chairman's approval. I am what I am today because of him. He has been good to me. I have to be loyal to the club. I will have to meet with him first. I thank the chairman for everything," says Lekgwathi.   If Pirates clinched the League title, would the skipper then consider hanging up his boots?   "My legs will tell me if I have to hang the boots but first I want to help the youngsters at the club. The chairman holds the key to when I have to hang my boots. He has played a major role in shaping my career at the club.   "Without a doubt winning the League title would be a massive achievement. We have not completed a League and Cup double in years," the defender adds.

_quote   Meanwhile Lekgwathi is urging his team-mates to prevent bitter rivals Chiefs from completing the League double over Bucs.   Chiefs beat Pirates 3-1 in the corresponding fixture, the skipper has identified their lapse in concentration as the main reason for their defeat in their last League meeting.   In what he describes as the toughest Derby in his career and as the holder of the captains arm band, Lekgwathi tells KickOff.com that the key to getting the better of their traditional rivals is to avoid a disastrous start as they had in their first round meeting.   "If we can hold the first 15 minutes, then I believe that we will win. I told the boys that if we get off to a bright start we will win. It's a pressure-filled game and our approach will determine the outcome."   Lekgwathi admits that Bucs' defence was shaky against AmaZulu in their recent 1-1 draw and this remains an area of concern.   "We have to improve at the back; we can't afford to slip up. That means the concentration level must go up."   Lekgwathi is not entertaining the thought that this tie will determine the championship title. The centre back still identifies Ajax as the dark horses for the title.

i personally rate this man high especially when it comes to organising the defence, and he is gonna play a vital role in this week's encounter because our Slimkat will not be available whom i also rate high due to his ability to organise his back four and undoubtfully his goalsaving ability...

@Oukapi

Take your job not as a favour my outie, how do you let CoWza to decide even the most personal thing ijn your life. I am sure the way you fear him you have even donated all your wife to him. I am sure you even clean his boots.

You have jst shown what Oukapi pap fc fans did not see in along while, that Pirates was cursed the day Kaizer decided to form the biggest team in the continent. The guy who bewitched that moegoe team of your died somewhen in 1983. You are cursed for life...
