Klate: The team comes first
The Orlando Pirates midfielder says the team's performance is more important than individual performances.
JOHANNESBURG - Orlando Pirates midfielder Daine Klate says his personal achievements always come second to the success of the team.
Orlando Pirates have three PSL matches lined up over the next three days as they look to make up lost ground on the rest of the league. At the moment, they are in 11th place on the log, six matches behind log leaders Kaizer Chiefs.
Klate believes if the club is successful, individual success will follow.
"I'm looking forward to helping and contributing towards the success of the team. The team has to do well first, and once the team does well, the individual will perform."
Following an intense 2013, coach Roger De Sa says the heavy workload is nothing new to his team.
"It's been like that for us for the last four months really. It's something that the players have learned to recover from, and they've learned to adapt to it. The players recover pretty quickly, they live good, clean lives and they make sure that we recover well and are ready for the next one."
