Striker Bernard Morrison has expressed huge delight after scoring his first goal for Orlando Pirates.
Morrison’s ninth minute goal ensured the Bucs sealed the points in a 1-0 win over Ajax Cape Town on Tuesday night.
The 24-year-old has struggled to impress since joining from Democratic Republic of the Congo outfit AS Vita Club last year.
New Orlande Pirates coach Milutin Sredojevic handed him a starting role and the former AshantiGold player grabbed the opportunity with an impressive showcase.
”It feels good and I’m happy that I have scored my first goal for the club,” Morrison told Soccer Laduma
”You know, I have been with the club for a year and it wasn’t good that I wasn’t playing or scoring. It felt like the club was wasting money on me or something.
”When I recovered from injury I pushed myself hard to prepare for when I get an opportunity to play. I’m happy it came and I managed to score.”
