Wome: I'm surrounded by good players


Wome has impressed since joining Bucs on a six-month loan deal in January from SuperSport United, netting three times and providing two assists for the Buccaneers.

The Togolese midfielder has given credit to his teammates for helping him swiftly settle at Mayfair.

"Credit must go to my teammates because they are always there for me," says Wome.

"Even on the field of play they are always there for me because they provide good passes and all that. So for me to settle down at Pirates it's easy because there are good players around me."

Pirates, who are celebrating their 80th anniversary this year, can only aim for a top-eight finish in the league at this stage of the season.

Winning the Nedbank Cup has therefore become a priority as it would also book them a spot in next term's CAF Confederation Cup.

Wome is eager to match The Ghost's expectations.

"This cup is the only chance to bring glory to the club and go back to Africa. We will go all the way and try to win the cup. My wish is to play in Africa, to do well, as this is the only chance to play in Africa," says the former Mamelodi Sundowns man.
