Ndoro: Being a foreigner is harder at Orlando Pirates

Zimbabwean international Tendai Ndoro has revealed that it’s been harder for him to get a starting jersey at Orlando Pirates as a foreigner.

Ndoro has had a frustrating time since his move from Mpumalanga Black Aces but struck a brace this weekend in their 3-1 win over his former side.

His performance saw Eric Tinkler admit that he will have added selection pressure.

In an exclusive interview with South African publication Soccer Laduma Ndoro said, “I have caps to play for in the national team and, if I am not playing, I won’t achieve what I want to achieve. However, I will remain patient and positive.

Ndoro gave his teammate Thamsanqa Gabuza as an example. Gabuza had to wait to eventually get game time.

I think Gabuza has an advantage because he is a local player said Ndoro .“I am a foreigner and I have a place to fight for in the national team.

It remains to be seen whether Ndoro will get a starting place this weekend in Pirate’s next games against Bloemfontein Celtic.
