Pirates Setting High Standards For Chiefs & Downs

Orlando Pirates once again find themselves making South Africa proud by progressing to the final of the CAF Confederation Cup despite the prophets of doom writing the Buccaneers off ahead of time.

What I witnessed yesterday reminded me of the good old days. Who can forget how Pirates dominated Africa in 1995 en-route to winning the CAF Champions League and also the marvellous run in the competition under Roger De Sa back in 2013. 

Now a force to be reckoned with in continental competition, Bucs certainly set the standard in Africa for South African clubs, with teams like Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns still struggling to make their mark in Africa.

Will Pirates dominate Africa in years to come?
