Pitso On Pirates In The CL & Wits’ Experience In Nigeria

Pitso Mosimane Has Commented On Orlando Pirates Being Back In The CAF Champions League

By Soccer Laduma - May 04, 2018 04:48 PM

Mamelodi Sundowns head coach, Pitso Mosimane has commented on Orlando Pirates' return to the CAF Champions League competition and the challenges that come with it.  

The Buccaneers booked their spot in the African competition for next season, after ending off their league campaign at second place on the Absa Premiership standings.

Speaking to the media after the Brazilians’ 2-2 draw to Maritzburg United in the Absa Premiership, Mosimane went on to explain how difficult it is in Africa, making a special mention to the experience of Bidvest Wits who travelled to Nigeria last month.

“Pirates always plays there, they have been there before us and they’ve done it before, beautiful. You remember what happened to Wits? They went to Nigeria and then? What do you think we are eating when we are there? Because we are from Enyimba remember. What do you think we are eating?” Mosimane told the media.

“Do you want us to tell you what we are facing, who cares? It is Africa, it is not for the faint heart, you want to play in Africa, and you play. But all I see is people playing second string teams and all that and then when it is like that, you can never compare with Mamelodi Sundowns in that space, let’s travel the same route if you can travel the same route with me, let’s do it. You cant start half way and then when you reach there you say, no I have won. Let’s travel the same route and four years in a row, who qualifies? And number one and number two, every year? Only Esperance, Al Ahly and Mamelodi Sundowns, even Wydad, Zesco, it becomes a bit of a problem, I mean you know where SuperSport is at the moment, you know Wits is, you want to play Champions League? Okay let’s go,” he added.

Whilst I respect what Pitso has achieve with his large budget, but he has now started being annoyingly talkative and has become like irritative rash. He comments on who he thinks should be player of the season coach of the season? Young player of tje season! What is more annoying is the that he ignores the fact that Pirates have been to two African champion league within three years with mostly local players, and with the tight schedule and he talks as if his team is the only team to have played the tight schedule matches, its high time he focus on his team and stop blubbing where he is not supposed very annoying indeed.

Pitso please man aowa! Yes you guys won the league, please leave Pirates alone, talk about your own team man. Pirates is getting full 6 points against this Dunusa next season, Pirates has mastered a style of play that will destroy many teams next season in PSL. Again Pirates mostly finishes at the CCL final ( or after group stages), let’s see if we can’t go win next season, and we won’t be looking over our shoulders because that’s not our style. We represent the nation with honesty and we don’t go to final through back door, now the fat one is giving Orlando Pirates tips on African adventure? Goodness me!

Congrats to Pitso. He deserves all the success because he is a hard worker. People are are jealous because just because Pitso is black. If he was white, people will be singing praises. BHD syndrom (bring him down syndrom) is a desease to our black nation.
