The Buccaneers will host the Urban Warriors at Orlando Stadium tomorrow in the Nedbank Cup Last 32 match.

“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.
