Abbubaker Mobara relishing representing Orlando Pirates


Pirates recently recruited the versatile 22-year-old and winger Riyaad Norodien from Ajax Cape Town.

"Pirates is a big club obviously any person that comes to this club would be excited to be here," Mobara told Bucs' website.

"The club has a prestigious history and there are a lot of things expected from the club itself so to have the opportunity to add to the club’s history is a huge honour that very few people get to have. Overall I’m just excited to be with the calibre of players in the club as well as coach Muhsin Ertugral who gave me my break when he promoted me to the senior team at Ajax.”

He added: "Obviously every footballer’s dream is to win silverware. Over the years I have watched and played against Pirates so there is no doubt in my mind that Pirates is one of the best clubs and with the team we have that should be a realistic goal."

Mobara expressed his gratitude to The Ghost for making him feel welcome and vows to put in an honest shift for the team.

"I want to thank them for welcoming me into the club. I promise to be loyal and serve the club the best way possible.

"I look forward to my first skull and crossbones salute in my opening match. I’m not here to do anything fancy, I just want to work hard and keep it simple but overall I want to serve them, the club and my family well."
