Highlands Park coach Owen da Gama has reassured Tendai Ndoro’s fans that the striker’s best is yet to come.

The former Orlando Pirates center forward joined the Lions of the North in September last year and has one goal & three assists in seven appearances.

“I don’t think Tendai’s at his best yet. You’ve got to understand that Tendai is used to playing with another, where he can drop off and there’s a target man and he can play,” Da Gama told KickOff.

As every Pirates fan will attest, Ndoro has a unique style of play which sees him play as a traditional target man, yet he drifts out of the box very often to show his comfortable ability on the ball, sometimes frustrating his technical team and fans when balls get played into an empty box.

“But I feel he really makes the team buzz. He makes the players move around. I think he is still getting into the system that we play with a very fast attack, which he played with when he was at Pirates. But I think he is finding his feet very quickly and I still believe we have not seen the best of Tendai Ndoro. I think he is going to improve and get better and better, once the combinations get better within the team,” Da Gama concluded.
