Orlando Pirates are not taking the grudge match approach in their preparations to face Ajax Cape Town, according to the club’s assistant coach, Rhulani Mokwena.
The Buccaneers will host the Urban Warriors at Orlando Stadium tomorrow in the Nedbank Cup Last 32 match.
Having recently suffered their first defeat of 2018 against Ajax, during their 3-0 loss in an Absa Premiership match last Wednesday, Bucs are keen on turning the tables against the Mother City outfit.
“Big teams are not motivated by grudges but are inspired by a desire to improve and do better. We have a positive energy which is centred on the responsibility we have not only to the badge but also to the supporters.
“It is clear that we are undergoing a technical revolution while we are establishing a game model that reflects the stature of Orlando Pirates Football Club. The responsibility of a big team is to create a game model that is synonymous with how we would like to see South Africa play. This is the project of the technical team, not grudges,” Mokwena told Bucs'official website.
