Wome: Nothing To Prove Against SuperSport
Dove Wome Not Talking Revenge For Pirates V SuperSport
Orlando Pirates’ Dove Wome says he will have nothing to prove against SuperSport United in tonight’s game.
The Buccaneers host Matsatsantsa in an Absa Premiership game at the Orlando Stadium tonight.
Wome, who has been impressive for Bucs this year, joined the club on loan from Matsatsantsa in January. The Togolese spoke to Pirates’ official website about the team’s aims for the game.
“The match against SuperSport United will be like any other match I have played for Pirates. I have nothing to prove against SuperSport United or anybody else. I have full respect for the team, this is where I have spent my last three years or so as a player but when I take to the field tonight, it will be more about what I can contribute towards the success of Orlando Pirates.
“It’s no secret that they beat us 6-1 in the first round but that’s in the past, for us it’s not about revenge. We will not approach this match with that kind of mindset. This is a new match which requires a new approach and will present a new set of challenges therefore, our approach is to play our normal open game and try collect the maximum points on offer.
Despite the results that have not been forthcoming for Bucs, Wome says the mood is positive in the Pirates camp.
“The mood in the camp has been positive. Usually when things are not going well, one would expect the morale to be low but the mood in the dressing room has changed, the team spirit is unbelievable. Everyone is motivating each other and we are all prepared to help each other out on the pitch.
“The coach (Kjell Jonevret) has been a breath of fresh air, he has worked hard on our confidence. All that is left for us is to ensure that we execute the mandate he gives us on match day. Like I said, the mood is great both on and off the pitch, we are united in our goal to fight and win for the Club and I think that will carry us through tonight,” Wome said.
