Qalinge has featured in all of Pirates games this season, scoring three goals.
The winger was instrumental in the club’s qualification for the last eight of the Telkom Knockout, scoring the winning goal in their 1-0 win over Golden Arrows at the Princess Magogo Stadium this past weekend.
“The support plays a huge role, they are supporting me enough and the coaches believe in me. I just have to keep on working hard and produce good results for the team,” said Qalinge.
The winger will be one of the players to watch when the Buccaneers host Mamelodi Sundowns at the Orlando Stadium on Wednesday.
