Orlando Pirates head coach Milutin Sredojevic has singled out one of his key players Musa Nyatama, praising his contribution to the team while giving him legendary Brazilian alias.
‘Micho’ named Nyatama ‘Musa-lnho’ which Inho is a Brazilian name made famous by one of Brazil’s greatest attackers, Ronaldo de Assis Moreira better known as Ronaldinho.
Although Nyatama is nothing similar to Ronaldo, this was the Serbian’s way of acknowledging the midfielder whom he spoke highly and glowingly of, stating that he believes he can help the team get the taste of the title.
“’Musa-linho’ is a pillar of this team since he has come to Pirates. He’s a versatile player that could satisfy anything that football demands,” said Micho as quoted by KickOff.com.
“I would like to say he is a two-way traffic player – a player that helps us in the build-up and a player that helps us in protecting the goal. As such, we are honoured, pleased and privileged to have such a human-being and player amongst us, that is also visible to us but invisible to many.
“He is an unsung hero and a person that does all the work, and he stamps the authority of the game-model that we play.”
