Ndulula headed for Israel

Orlando Pirates striker Bongani Ndulula headed for Israel

Posted: 2 January 2013 Time: 12:32 am

Orlando Pirates striker Bongani Ndulula is expected to leave for Israel soon, after being invited by Bnei Sakhnin FC for trials.

Ndulula, who is the all-time top goal scorer for the the national Under-23s, has not seen much game-time at Orlando Pirates this season, as experienced campaigners such Collins Mbesuma, Benni McCarthy and Takesure Chinyama have been selected ahead of him in the number nine position.

Speaking in an interview with KickOff.com on New Year Day, Tim Sukazi of Quality Talent Sports, Ndulula's management agency, confirmed the player's invitation, but adds they are still to seek permission from Pirates for him to leave for trials.

“It is true that we have opened the European window of opportunity for ‘Drogba’,” Sukazi says. “The invitation letter was eventually sent to us on the last day of 2012 as we have been working on this for some time, purely out of concern of seeing such young talent being stagnated.

“However, one cannot apportion any blame to Pirates as the competition for places is always going to be high at such a big club. The mere fact that Pirates are ‘double-treble’ champions says it all.

“We are currently escalating the matter with the powers that be at Pirates and we are confident that the club will allow Ndulula to go for trials in Israel, as he is one youngster that the club has taken special care of, which indicates to me that the club has his best interests at heart.

“Pirates have made him and they would want to take pride in the further advancement of his career.”

Ndulula has also been linked to PSL teams, including Platinum Stars and Chippa United, with a move during the transfer window in January hinted at.

“Of course, there have been several inquiries from local clubs,” Sukazi confirms. “However, with interest from Europe on hand, common sense and logic dictates that the European opportunity be given preference to any local opportunity.”

So unfortunate that results are what determine a coach's future. Soccer is a results driven business and as a result coaches must produce a starting eleven that will win a match especially at a team like Pirates. The downside of all of this short sightedness is that it closes the door to up and coming players. In an ideal world, clubs should not buy players they must create them. That would make business sense but we don't live in Utopia. In all honesty Drogba is a talent that needs to be nurtured even though at his age he should be playing on a regular.

We complain that lack of player development is to blame for what has become of Bafana Bafana but we fail to criticize the likes of Roger when he fields a fat 34 year old instead of a full of running and in need of expirience 23 year old. It would be unfair to put all the blame on Roger because like I have already stated he needs to deliver results. All the best with your future Bongani and may you make the most of it should you pass your trials even though Israel is a kak place to be playing your football!

Kunamahem-hem that Chansa might be back, and Kalaba might join. We currently have two foreign spots, as we have Chinyama,Mbesuma,Okonkwo. Bester was born before 1989 in Namibia and he isnt deemed as foreigner
