There’s no unity among Pirates players – Ngobeni

Pirates have had a rollercoaster start to the 2019/20 season, getting dumped out of the Caf Champions League title and the MTN 8 competition and are languishing in the bottom half of the Absa Premiership standings.

Ngobeni believes the players are not working together to bring success to the club.

“I want to comment on Pirates not as someone who has played for this club previously,” Ngobeni told Isolezwe. “What is important for Pirates is for them to united, to work together and to get along.

“When I watch them play I can tell they are divided. I hope they can fix that because it has the potential to hurt the team. We must never forget that Pirates is a big team.

“I think some players want to be see more than others, putting themselves first before the team. Players must stop this, they should put the team first. The mistakes that they are making now can be fixed.”
