Orlando Pirates can still make up for a disappointing season with an attempt at winning the Nedbank Cup, according to the team’s former player, Lucas Tlhomelang.

Tlhomelang believes that should Bucs win and lift the trophy, that would go a long way to bring back the smiles to the faces of the Pirates supporters.

“I think they (Pirates) should try and win the Nedbank Cup because by doing so they will wipe off the tears of the supporters. Even if they don’t qualify for the top eight, winning the Nedbank Cup will wipe off some of the supporters’ tears. That’s the only way that can help the guys (players) to make up for a poor season.

“They must just win the cup for the supporters and for the chairman, Irvin Khoza. The chairman has been supportive. He brought them a new coach (Kjell Jonevret) and has supported them throughout.

“The club is celebrating its 80th anniversary and the guys must make sure that they win the cup to make up for whatever has happened during the season. Winning the cup will make the supporters forget about the top eight and the poor season,” said Tlhomelang.   

The Buccaneers will face SuperSport United in the final of the prestigious competition at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on June 24.
