Micho backs Gabuza to rediscover his scoring touch

Cape Town – With the support of his team-mates and the technical team, Orlando Pirates coach Milutin Sredojevic believes Thamsanqa Gabuza will soon be among the goals again.

Gabuza has netted three goals this season, but has not found the net since scoring a brace in a 2-2 draw with Polokwane City on September 30.

"He is the darling of the team. He is as good a positive guy that you could imagine," Micho' told KickOff website.

"Thabo Matlaba his good friend will agree with me. He is a very nice guy, good for the team, very positive personality at training.

"All of us, we really wanted [in Saturday's 1-1 draw with AmaZulu] to break this jinx. He scored two goals against Polokwane and since then he has had many good chances but missed."

The Serbian-born coach went on to explain that from a mental perspective, it's important for Gabuza to feel the full support of those around him.

"In the dressing room all of us have given him support. He is our man. In football we win as team, we draw as a team and we lose as a team.

"When you miss one there is that proactive reaction of our players that enters his head and the mental blockage that stops him from stopping thinking about this, but [instead] looking forward to creating more and breaking the jinx.

"I believe after the first and second miss he started to have a blockage. We need to support him because the time will come when he will repay with goals important for us," he concluded.
