Bucs Legend Backs Current Squad

Orlando Pirates legend, Brendan Silent, says that he feels the current Bucs squad has what it takes to get over the next hurdle in the 2013 CAF Champions League.

Silent sported the Bucs jersey for almost a decade, and played a role in Pirates’ famous 1995 CAF Champions League winning team.

Pirates are in the Republic of Congo to face AC Leopards in a must win clash for top spot of their final Group A match of the continental competition.

There have been numerous stumbling blocks for Pirates with injuries to Collins Mbesuma, Lehlogonolo Masalesa and Thandani Ntshumayelo, while Andile Jali, Thabo Matlaba and Happy Jele miss the match due to suspension.

Despite the difficulties, Silent is confident that the Bucs travelling squad can progress out of the group stages of Africa’s premium club competition.

Silent told Soccer-Laduma, They have some great players. The team spirit seems to be doing wonders too. They have got the right mix to get through to the next round. I think they will at least get through to the next round.

The Bucs legend went on to back head coach, Roger de Sa, to succeed in Bucs’ hot seat by stating, “Roger de Sa has done well with his time in charge so far. The players are playing for him and he seems to get along with them all.”
