Pule: It's not about me

Premiership

Orlando Pirates winger Vincent Pule claims he has to work hard no matter where he is deployed on the pitch.

The Buccaneers winger scooped up the Man of the Match award after his side's 2-1 victory over Chippa United on Saturday night.

"First of all I want to thank God for the talent that he gave me, we played well as a team. We knew that it was going to be difficult, an away game is always difficult," Pule told SuperSport TV.

"But we had to pass the ball around, fortunately we got two goals early and I think it's working for us to score early. The spirit is good, we're having fun, he said to us, "Go to the pitch, enjoy yourself and have fun", but we have to defend well and stay compact. And I think it's working for us.

"We know we have to work hard, we have to continue with what we have now. We have to keep going, it's good now, we won six [five] games in a row. It's working for us, we work hard and we keepp on going."

The former Bidvest Wits midfielder insists he's not chasing personal glory and refused to talk about their title chances.

"I have to work hard for the team, no matter where I play, I need to work hard and do it for the team. Personally, it's all about the badge, it's not about me. I have to do the job for the team.

"We take it one game at a time and we keep on going."
