Match-winner Karim Kimvuidi says there’s more to come from him

Orlando Pirates midfielder Karim Kimvuidi says this is just the beginning for him after scooping his first Man of the Match award.

The 21-years-old was excellent as the Buccaneers saw off Golden Arrows 2-1 on Sunday.

Patrick Maswanganyi had opened the scoring for Pirates from the penalty spot on 30 minutes, ahead of a Nduduzo spot-kick on the stroke of half-time.

But Kimvuidi secured all three points with his goal after 56 minutes – having also won the Bucs penalty.

It was the former Maritzburg United player’s first goal for Pirates in 12 appearances in all competitions this season.

Reflecting on the game, Kimvuidi said in the Citizen: “Thank you, I am happy with this trophy. It is my first (man-of-the-match) trophy (at Pirates), I am happy.

“Thank you to the coaches for giving me the opportunity again, and also thank you to my teammates and everyone at the club.”

He added: “This is just the start, we are not finished. We have to push and we will continue (pushing) in our upcoming games. We are supposed to be the team at the top (of the league standings) and we can do it.”

Pirates are next in action against SuperSport United at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Saturday.
