Mahachi Inundated With Calls, Reveals Two Bucs Idols

Orlando Pirates’ Kudakwashe Mahachi has revealed why he will be emotional if he makes the trip for the team’s upcoming CAF Champions League match this weekend.

The Zimbabwean international has started 2019 in high spirits and enjoying great scoring form for the Soweto giants, although he has not been starting matches under coach Milutin Sredojevic.

Mahachi has scored goals in both Absa Premiership matches for Bucs so far this year, against Highlands Park and Chippa United respectively.

With his improved form, Mahachi has put himself in a good position to be considered for inclusion to the travelling squad to his country of birth for this weekend’s match in the Champions League against FC Platinum in Bulawayo on Saturday afternoon.

“Should I be considered to travel with the team to Zimbabwe, I will certainly be emotional because I’ll be going back home to a place where I grew up. Everybody in Bulawayo supports Orlando Pirates. We grew up watching the team and supporting players like Teko Modise and Joseph Kamwendo, who were an inspiration to watch,” Mahachi told Pirates’ official website.

“The team I played (for) while I was based there, Highlanders FC, modelled themselves around Orlando Pirates. They even adopted the Club’s iconic crossbones salute before the start of their matches,” added the winger.

“I have been inundated with calls from back home telling me that they are excited over the prospect of seeing Orlando Pirates play in Bulawayo. They are telling me that they are 100% behind us. They have also been inquiring about the likes of Thembinkosi Lorch, Vincent Pule and the rest of the guys because they follow the team religiously,” concluded Mahachi.
