Orlando Pirates attacker Vincent Pule admits that it was a ‘special moment’ to score the winner against Kaizer Chiefs in the Soweto derby.
The 26-year-old proved the difference between the two sides in their action-packed clash at the FNB Stadium on Saturday as he netted the winner in his Soweto Derby debut.
Buccaneers attacking duo Justin Shonga and Augustine Mulenga combined to give the former Bidvest Wits man the easiest of tap-ins and Pule admits that he will forever cherish the goal having grown up watching clashes between the two rivals.
‘It was a special moment to score a Derby goal. I will definitely remember this one for a very long time,’ Pule told his club’s official website.
‘We have all grown up watching this game and it has always been a dream to play in it, so having that chance and also scoring and winning the game made it a great weekend for me.
‘Shonga’s inside pass to Mulenga was very good, and in that position we all know how dangerous Mulenga can be. He’s such a clever player.
‘When [Itumeleng] Khune came out and Mulenga picked the pass, I was in the right place at the right time for the finish. It was a nice finish to a great build up,’ he concluded.
Pule has been directly involved in nine goals in his 12 appearances in all competitions since joining from wits, netting five times while being on hand to assist four goals
