"You Must Be Willing To Die For The Pirates " - Reader's Voice

Every day fans will be wondering if all the Orlando Pirates players know what it means to wear that jersey.

 It appears that they are not willing to die for this beautiful team. They are missing the likes of Benni McCarthy, Excellent Walaza, Isaac Chansa, Jerry Sikhosana, Senzo Meyiwa, Daine Klate and many more of those players, who knew that, for you to wear that jersey, you must be willing to die for the team.

The problem is with the players and not the coach because you can bring many coaches in, but they will fail because the players don’t know the meaning of wearing that jersey.

Someone must remind them that some people leave their families at night and some travel far just to watch them play. They do not go to their matches just because they are bored, but because of the love they have for the team.

It hurts to see a big team like pirates fighting for a top 8 finish instead of fighting for the league and something must be done quickly before they end up like Moroka Swallows.
