Nedbank Cup

Skhosana: I Am Proud Of My Boys

Tornado FC coach Jerry Skhosana says that he always expected life to be tough against Orlando Pirates.

Goals from Lennox Bacela, Sifiso Myeni and a brace from ‘man of the match’ Thandani Ntshumayelo dumped Tornado FC out of the Nedbank Cup 4-0 on Wednesday night, but Skhosana said it was nothing he didn’t expect.

Still the former Pirates and Bafana Bafana player said he was proud of his team especially the way they displayed themselves against a team of the Buccaneers calibre.

“This is always what we expected,” said the Tornado FC coach.

“It was always going to be difficult.

“The boys gave it their best, but it is always difficult to play against Pirates, they are a ball playing team.

“I am still not convinced with the first penalty, I don’t know where it comes from, but those things happen in football.

“It is so touching when you see these young boys trying hard and they getting yellow cards.

“We are trying to contain a team that is playing brilliant football.

“I give credit to the boys, they gave their best.

“You have other PSL teams that come here and get five or six, so I am still proud of the boys.

Our goal now is to win the league in the Eastern Cape and maybe qualify for the play-offs, and who knows we might even go to the NFD.”
