Chansa Impressed With Bucs, Begins Talk Of Second Star

Francis Chansa Has Been Impressed With Orlando Pirates

By Soccer Laduma - Aug 11, 2018 09:34 AM

Francis Chansa has been impressed with Orlando Pirates’ start to the 2018/19 season, with the former goalkeeper already talking about the team’s chances of competing for the second star with their return to the CAF Champions League.

The Buccaneers began their league campaign with a 1-1 draw against Highlands Park on the weekend, which was followed with a 1-0 victory over Chippa United on Wednesday evening.

With the Buccaneers also set to return to the Champions League, after finishing second on the PSL log last season, Chansa is confident that Milutin Sredojevic’s team can go all the way to cause an upset in the continental competition with the squad they currently have.

“I think as long as they can follow what the coach and his technical team are telling them to do they can achieve. They don’t have a bad coach (in Milutin Sredojevic), and Rulani (Mokwena) who has a very good background and experience from having worked at (Mamelodi) Sundowns. They have a very good technical team,” said Chansa.

The former goalkeeper, who is now a qualified goalkeeper coach, has advised Bucs’ current team on how to work around their way to success. 

“The players will need to pull up their socks and show that they can take that team too far. What they should always remember is that they are not playing for themselves. As a Pirates player, you play for your family, supporters and you play for your future. Some of us are no longer playing football but we still have people calling us 'Buccaneers'. Even when I go home I still have people calling me 'Buccaneer' in DRC. They must show that they deserve to be there.  

“They must show that the club never signed them to just add numbers. The culture of Pirates is not to sign players to come and add numbers. If they can pull together and unite, I think they can add a second star to the team’s badge. I am confident of that because the club has great players. With the way they have started, I think the signs are there for a good season, and they will just have to learn from the mistakes they make along the way,” concluded Chansa.

Talk about a second star is rather premature Mr. Chansa. But yes , I get your drift :))

This one is not Isaac guys, its Francis, our former goalkeeper. I hear my fellow blockers talking about "king of long range" and "passes". Let's read before we comment or else you are going to be out of the topic always.
