Jele has been included in the 18-man Bucs squad that left for Egypt this morning for the second-leg of their CAF Confederation Cup semi-final clash against Egyptian giants, Al Ahly.

The 28-year-old missed the first-leg through suspension and his availability for the second-leg will be welcomed by coach Eric Tinkler, as he will add experience and stability to the Buccaneers defence.

Pirates departed for Egypt earlier this morning. They will travel via Dubai and are expected to arrive in Cairo tomorrow morning before a one-and-a-half hour bus ride to Suez.

Bucs will take on Al Ahly at the Suez Army Stadium in front of what is likely to be a partisan crowd.

“We are going to Egypt knowing very well the obstacle that stands between us and reaching the final. We did well to not concede a goal in the first-leg but there is still a lot to play for.”

“Fortunately we have played in Egypt already so I don’t think intimidation is something we need to worry about, the only focus right now Is our application in the field of play,” Jele said on Pirates’ official website.
