Mayoyo hits out at Nyauza release


Orlando Pirates legend Innocent Mayoyo has hit out at the club's decision to release long-time servant Ntsikelelo Nyauza.

Nyauza is set to part ways with the Buccaneers bringing an end to an eight-year stay at the club after joining on January 16, 2014, from Roses United.

During his stay, Nyauza lifted the 2020 MTN8 trophy under Josef Zinnbauer.

"It happens every year," Mayoyo tells KickOff.

"It's something we've been saying over and over again, it shows you that continuity is not our thing.

"It's not only a Pirates problem but a South African problem.

"That's why Sundowns will always remain dominant because they don't just release players.

"I didn't see Nyauza's departure coming, and think he was supposed to follow in the mould of Lucky Lekgwathi.

"Just because of the way he expressed himself at the club, as he appeared to take his job seriously.

"In all this, I have only one question, where is the continuity?

"As long as there is no continuity, clubs will struggle to be consistent.

"These players we are releasing part of the club's culture.

"Even Sundowns, they didn't become what they are overnight, keeping the core of the team it's what made them who they are today.

"Because if you look carefully, we have released all the players who performed well for us in Africa, like Thabang Monare, Linda Mntambo, who are all gone.

"The failure to not be promoting many players from our development ranks who gain success in the senior team shows there is no philosophy, no concept."
