Pirates Star Cautions! It’s Not Over

An Orlando Pirates star is appealing for caution and to guard against complacency in their encounter this weekend for the team to advance to the next stage of the continental competition.

Having won 3-0 in their first leg CAF Confederation Cup play-off fixture against Jwaneng Galaxy in Botswana last Sunday, the Buccaneers go into the second leg at Orlando Stadium on Sunday having their sights on advancing to the next stage of the competition.

Pirates midfielder Linda Mntambo, who was one of the goal scorers in Gaborone, was delighted to have been given a chance to contribute to the team’s progress. 

“I have to give thanks to the coaches for giving me the chance to start and trusting me to deliver in a CAF fixture, which was such a crucial game. As for myself, I’m really happy that all the hard work I’ve been doing on the side is really paying off, along with the patience that I’ve been having,” said Mntambo, speaking through Pirates’ official website.

“I’m a person who is always patient, I always wait for my time, and when the time came, I’m happy that I was able to deliver a good performance. To top it up with a goal was just a bonus,” he said.

“The victory was important, especially playing against a team we did not know much about. There hasn’t been any league football in Botswana, while they have probably been following our games. It’s not over. We still have the second leg to play. They are likely to come hard at us and will be looking to rectify their mistakes from the previous leg. Being three goals up puts us in a good position, but we still have to keep the same mentality, keep the same hunger, and make sure that we win,” concluded Mntambo.
