Pirates Captain Makes Bold CAF Declaration

With memories of the Orlando Pirates side that reached final of the CAF Confederation Cup in 2015‚ experienced defender and captain, Happy Jele believes that Josef Zinnbauer’s team can replicate the achievements of that year when they were still under Eric Tinkler.

Having started the group stages of the continental competition last week with a 0-0 draw in Ghana against Algeria's ES Sétif, the Buccaneers will be going for a win in Orlando against Nigerian giants Enyimba this evening.

“I see a lot of potential in this team that we have, the way we play and the effort that we put on the field, and each and everyone works for one another. It’s possible that we can reach there and get the cup as well. For me, we’ve got a good squad and we just have to get the results and that’s all,” said Jele, speaking to the media.
