Former Orlando Pirates assistant coach, Teboho Moloi, has shared his wish for the Soweto giants and South African football.
Speaking to the Siya crew ahead of Pirates’ clash with Mamelodi Sundowns on Wednesday, Moloi has wished for the Buccaneers to win for what he believes would be a turnaround of their season after a stuttering start.
“I wish that Pirates will win against Sundowns as that would go a long way to giving them confidence that they can improve their season and to possibly win the Nedbank Cup and reclaim their place on the African continent. A win will boost their confidence to believe that they belong up there with best. That’s a young team with a lot of potential but they don’t realise that they have the potential.
"They need to understand that they are playing for a big team and they need to understand why they are wearing that jersey. They need to know all the elements that come with playing for Pirates. They need to understand everything that comes with the Pirates supporters not turning their backs on them but continuously supporting them. Pirates belongs at the top and in Africa,” said Moloi.
The legend’s wish for Mzansi football is for two clubs from the PSL to play in the final of a continental competition one day.
“After we (Pirates) lost to Al Ahly in the final of the Champions League, I said maybe I am a dreamer but I said I would be happy one day to see two South African teams playing in the final of a continental competition – be it the Champions League or the Confederation Cup. I'd be happy to see Pirates and any other (PSL) team in the final,” concluded Moloi.
