Ovono was amongst the players put on the transfer list by Pirates after an unsuccessful season, but Pirates coach Muhsin Ertugral believes that the Equatorial Guinea shot-stopper’s presence can offer the club variety in their goalkeeping department, hence they decided to keep him.
“That’s why I brought him back. He is great goalkeeper, we know that. Jackson Mabokgwane is also a good goalkeeper, so we have some good competition,” Ertugral told Kickoff.
“Ovono is great and doesn’t have to prove himself in South Africa. I don’t know what the problem was, I was not there. We know he is a great goalkeeper, and it’s a pleasure to have him.”
