According to a source close to the striker, Lepasa has already set a target for himself next season and is keen to impress the Bucs coaching staff.

“He is very excited about playing for the first team. He wants to prove to the technical team that he is ready to play in the senior team and score goals for them. However, what really motivates him is that the coach (Micho Sredojevic) has been talking to him and he assured him he is one of those players that will make Pirates one of the best teams in Africa again,” said the source.
