Bucs Announce CL Squad

Orlando Pirates have announced the team that will play in the 2013 CAF Champions League this season.

Pirates are scheduled to begin their Champions League programme with a home fixture against FC Djabal from the Comoros in February.

The team has been trying to emulate the class of 1995 by winning the prestigious competition but suffered a disastrous campaign last season where they tumbled out in the first round.

The treble winners suffered a shock defeat to Angolan side Recreativo de Libolo where they were stunning 3-1 at home and could only draw 1-1 in Angola.

The full squad is as follows.
