Abbubaker Mobara says he is relishing the chance to win silverware with Orlando Pirates ahead of the upcoming season.
The Soweto giants have recently completed the signing of both Mobara and Riyaad Norodien from Ajax Cape Town.
The 22-year-old says he is honoured to be part of the Buccaneers and to be amongst quality players along a coach of Muhsin Ertugral calibre.
‘Pirates is a big club obviously any person that comes to this club would be excited to be here,’ Mobara told the Orlando Pirates website.
‘The club has a prestigious history and there are a lot of things expected from the club itself so to have the opportunity to add to the club’s history is a huge honour that very few people get to have.
‘Overall I’m just excited to be with the calibre of players in the club as well as coach Muhsin Ertugral who gave me my break when he promoted me to the senior team at Ajax.’
Mobara believes that winning silverware with the Sea Robbers is one of his objectives at the Mayfair.
‘Obviously, every footballer’s dream is to win silverware. Over the years I have watched and played against Pirates so there is no doubt in my mind that Pirates is one of the best clubs and with the team we have that should be a realistic goal,’ he added.
The former Ajax Cape Town defender expressed his gratitude to Pirates for making him feel at home and he insists on working hard to help the club back to success.
‘I want to thank them for welcoming me into the club. I promise to be loyal and serve the club the best way possible,’ he said.
‘I look forward to my first skull and crossbones salute in my opening match. I’m not here to do anything fancy, I just want to work hard and keep it simple but overall I want to serve them, the club and my family well.’
During his spell in Cape Town, Mobara featured in 81 appearances in all competitions, scoring three goals and created four assists.
