Orlando Pirates coach Rulani Mokwena says they are targeting maximum points in both their final Absa Premiership matches of 2019.
“We know what we have to do in the last two games. You (the media) have termed it operation Limpopo, but we have termed it operation festive season. We want to make it up to our fans,” the coach told journalists.
The Buccaneers, who round off the year with fixtures against Baroka FC and Black Leopards, returned to winning ways on Tuesday night with a 3-2 victory over another Limpopo outfit in Polokwane City and now have just two more games before the short Christmas recess that is perhaps much needed for Mokwena.
“We want to send them off on a good note – we are doing this for them. The next two games are four our supporters. We are going to do the best that that we can to sign off the Christmas cards with three points and that is the most important thing and that is what we have spoken about and that is what we are going to do,” he explained.
“Ours is to serve and we are at the service of the best supporters in the country. They push us and have high expectations and want the best from their team. They have a football understanding and a deep knowledge of the game. They know when things are right and when they aren’t. They know the reasons behind that.”
