‘Cut & Paste’ Bucs Football Impressive, CAF Adventure Beckons…

The kind of football played by Orlando Pirates is likely to bring the team the results they need in their match this weekend in the CAF Champions League, according to the club’s former player Tonic Chabalala.

The Buccaneers will get their Champions League campaign underway tomorrow in Lusaka, against Zambian side Green Eagles at Nkoloma Stadium.

Chabalala, who was a solid defender for Bucs and a fan favourite during his heyday, says he has been impressed with coach Milutin Sredojevic’s team’s performances from matches they played against Kaizer Chiefs and Bloemfontein Celtic respectively.

“Pirates will get the result in Zambia although it is still the early stages of the competition. It is still early to say that they can go all the way and be the champions. But from their performances so far, there are some positives to take and the signs are there,” Chabalala told the Siya crew.

“I have noticed that they still move the ball around impressively, but my worry is when they lose it, especially in the middle of the park, they don’t seem to act quick enough and to track back and defend. They seem very slow to win the ball back. Some of the clubs will identify that weakness and use it against Pirates. Don’t take anything away from their attack, they are good and have very good ball players. Overall, Pirates play very well, and with the inclusion of players like (Gabadinho) Mhango and others, they look even more dangerous. It’s like cut and paste,” the former centre-back added.
