Palacios: Boa Morte will get his chance at Orlando Pirates
The Buccaneers will be able to count on the services of the Portuguese midfielder following his recovery from injuryOrlando Pirates caretaker coach Augusto Palacios says former Portugal international Luis Boa Morte will get his chance to play in the Premier Soccer League (PSL) soon.
Boa Morte has only made two appearances for Pirates and is yet to play the full 90 minutes since signing at the beginning of the year, partly due to an injury which kept him on the sidelines last month.
The midfielder is back training, but is still to convince the technical team that he deserves a start for Bucs.
"Luis is back and working hard at training," Palacios told KickOff.com. "There are two stages you have to go through after injury which is recovery and getting fit to play. He has recovered from injury and is now working on his fitness; the same with Sifiso Myeni.
"I am happy with their progress and as long as they work hard they will get a chance to play, just like any other player in the team," he said.
Bucs travel to Cape Town for their next League match against Ajax Cape Town on Friday.
Pirates will be without Andile Jali due to suspension, while Ajax will be without Khama Billiat after he received a red card during the league game against SuperSport United on Saturday.
“Both players will be missed by their respective clubs. I believe Ajax have the depth to find a good replacement for Billiat and the same with Pirates regarding Jali," said Palacios.
