Pirates Coach Jose Riveiro has defended striker Kwame Peprah | find out what he said

Pirates coach argues in favour of the team's star striker

Coach Jose Riveiro of the Pirates has defended striker Kwame Peprah after he made his debut in the team's defeat to Chippa United.

Peprah played for 60 minutes before being replaced by Bienvenu Eva Nga as the Soweto giants unsuccessfully attempted to breach the Chilli Boys' defence. Peprah, who finished his first season with Bucs as the team's joint-leading goal scorer with nine goals, had been the team's top goal scorer all season.

The Ghanaian forward was not deployed in the previous game against Stellenbosch FC on Wednesday because Eva Nga was chosen to start that match.

The coach was satisfied with the player's effort rate and defended him for his performance, despite some Pirates fans appearing to be less than pleased with the 21-year-performance.

As with everyone else, I won't single out Peprah because he was the one who played today's 60-minute game. Ten additional players were playing beside him on the field, and many—not all—of them had scoring opportunities. Peprah is in the starting eleven since he is performing well. He has gained more self-assurance, but as I mentioned earlier, scoring goals is not simple. As a result, little by little, the coach told reporters.

Phetso3 Coach, despite the fact that you are new and don't know him well, he will still reveal his true colours to you.

As a foreign striker, he needs to perform; Eva Nga has already scored and is even better at holding the ball for us, so working extremely hard is insufficient.

Sooner or later, this coach will recognise that the points are lost, and his struggles in the second half will make him a candidate for firing. We can't lose games when the majority of the players are acquainted from prior campaigns. It is obvious that none of them are prepared to advance. We want results, not justifications!

This coach is a coward. How do you play with just one striker at home against Chippa. Consider how Amazulu played against Supersport and how City won both games with three strikers in the second half.
