Orlando Pirates were simply awful in the Premier Soccer League, terribly inconsistent but were impressive in the Cups.
Bucs though, had nothing to show for it, having lost in the Caf Confederation Cup final and the Nedbank Cup final.
“I think it has been a good season for us, although we do not have anything to show for it,” Makola told Goal.com
“But I think as a team we did well. I have just come out of my best season as an individual. I think I did well overall.
“My hard work is starting to pay dividends and I am happy that I gave it my best.
“I tried to help the team where I could and I am content with my efforts.
“I also got called up to the national team and also scored on debut.
“So, I was impressed with how I did, although I feel that as a team we could’ve done much better.”
Makola pointing toward his own development is right. He’s certainly made a name for himself this season. However a season without trophies is never an achievement for Bucs. The midfielder can be optimistic of his own future, having earned a call-up for the SA national team too.
“When I left Stars I said that it was because I wanted to win trophies and also get into the national team,” he added.
“In my time here, I have won one trophy, I won’t count the Carling Black Label Cup, in that I have also reached like seven cup finals.
“No doubts I would have loved to have won those trophies but I am also in the national team,” Makola told Goal.
