The Bucs forward who arrived at the club with a huge reputation, having played for Portuguese top flight outfit Portimonense, is still to start a match in a Bucs shirt this season.
He told OPFC.com that being out of the team for a while “has increased my hunger to play.”
“At the moment it is tough to break into the team – the guys that are playing did the job and it was only fair that they got a chance to continue.
“But now we can see that things are getting tough for us, so, I have to prepare myself because I might get a chance to help the team.”
The burly forward is an instrumental cog in the Mozambican National set up and has featured constantly for the Mambas in the recent AFCON qualifiers.
He admitted that not playing at club level could cost his place in the National team.
“Of course – the coaches want to hear that you are playing which is better; but being a former professional players himself, the coach understands for now that things in football need patience sometimes.
“all I am doing for now is keep very fit, have the right mentality going to the national team and train really hard here.
“I am prepared to play just like the other guys here, so, we will keep focused and try our best to be ready for the match against Polokwane City.”
