Orlando Pirates' fitness trainer, Japhet Borges, is happy with the team's fitness levels and recovery, following their 3-0 victory over current CAF Champions League holders, Al Ahly, in Egypt.
Borges informed the Siya crew that the players who were involved in the victory over Al Ahly on Sunday only participated in a recovery session on Tuesday, while the rest of the squad completed a light training session.
Borges told Soccer-Laduma, “Yesterday all the guys who played against Al Ahly did a recovery session and those who didn’t play did light training with the guys who weren’t in the squad for the game.”
The full Pirates squad travelled to the FNB Stadium today to do their final preparations ahead of the clash against AmaZulu on Thursday evening.
“Today everybody did full training together at the FNB Stadium. The guys are all fully recovered from their trip to Egypt. We are pleases with their fitness levels,” added Borges.
