Fans should expect to see a better Thulani 'Tyson' Hlatshwayo in the forthcoming season, according to Orlando Pirates assistant coach Mandla Ncikazi.

Hlatshwayo joined the Soweto giants from the now-defunct Bidvest Wits at the start of last season but his first season was marred by a series of defensive errors and mistakes.

“Wait for it, if we don’t go 10 games without a changed Tyson, phone me and I owe you something. But I can guarantee you, we will see a different Tyson," said Ncikazi, according to iDiskiTimes.
“But I can guarantee you, we will see a different Tyson. We spoke. We spoke about a lot of things, about the team, his individual performances, where he wants to get this season, what he wants to achieve."

Hlatshwayo has also admitted that he hasn't been happy with his performances since joining Orlando Pirates. On Saturday, 14 August, Orlando Pirates will take on Swallows in the MTN8 quarter-finals.

According to Billiat, his performances with the club are not good enough and he wants to do much better. In 2018, the Zimbabwean attacker signed Amakhosi from Mamelodi Sundowns, ending a five-year relationship with his former club.

He appeared in 99 games for Masandawana, scoring 39 goals. Billiat has since made 84 appearances for Kaizer Chiefs and has scored 16 goals, something he is not very impressed with according to Goal.
