Tinkler says he was aware of Ndoro’s ability

Orlando Pirates head coach Eric Tinkler says he has never doubted the ability of Zimbabwean international Tendai Ndoro.

Ndoro was named man of the match in the Soweto Derby on Saturday after an impressive performance that saw him grab both goals in the 2-0 win.

Ndoro has had to endure a frustrating time on the bench but is showing his ability once given the chance.

Speaking after Pirates win Tinkler said, “We have always known and respected Tendai’s abilities. Give him a chance in front of goal and he will bury it.

“I was particularly impressed with his work ethic, he didn’t stop running and always looked for the ball.

“That is a sign of confidence and this is the confidence we hope we can build on to end the season on a good note.
