De Sa: We Need To Attack

Orlando Pirates coach Roger De Sa says his team will go for broke when they take on Al Ahly in the CAF Champions League Group A match at Orlando Stadium on Sunday.

The Buccaneers, who are currently lying second in Group A, need a resultin this game in order to keep their chances of reaching the semi-finals of the competition alive.

“We need to win and therefore we need to attack them. We won’t sit back and let them attack us, no, that will never happen,” De Sa told the Siya crew.

With Ahly coach Mohamed Youssef and midfielder Abdallah El-Said saying that the Red Devils are here in South Africa seeking revenge for the 3-0 drubbing they suffered against Bucs, De Sa is hoping that Ahly will go into the field with this mentality during Sunday’s game.

“I know that they’ll be looking for revenge, so I’m hoping that Al Ahly will come at us and open up. That will give us some spaces to explore,” added De Sa.

De Sa, however, is aware of the danger that is posed by the Ahly attackers, especially midfielder Mohamed Aboutreika.

“Aboutreika is a dangerous player. He plays just behind the Ahly strikers and he makes things happen for them. He is a very good player and we need to keep an eye on him, but we also have to look out for the other players because Ahly are a very good team,” concluded De Sa.
