Senegalese International, Issa Sarr is enjoying his spell in the South African Premier Soccer league were he turns out for Soweto giants Orlando Pirates. Pirates are one of the most supported clubs in football history with a rich history that dates back decades ago.
The anchorman has adapted well to the South African league having started his career turning out for 2013 cup kings Platinum Stars. He was called into the Pirates system to replace the departed Andile Jali, who found greener pastures in Belgium.
“It wasn’t like any game I have played in. There was lots of pressure from the supporters, especially since it was my first derby. I knew that if I played well, the supporters were going to accept me and that if I played badly they would start judging me. I think that the supporters accepted me because even in that game, they voted for me. I think I have done well at Pirates.
“But it is not good to talk well about yourself. The fans must judge me, whatever they say I will keep working hard. Winning cups is a nice feeling and I want to keep doing that. That makes you become a big player, the more successful you become,” he alluded.
