Dejan Calls For Neutral CL Final

Self-proclaimed Orlando Pirates number one supporter Dejan Miladinovic has called on the Confederation of African Football (CAF) to consider having one legged Champions League Final.

The final of Africa’s premier competition is currently played over two legs.

Speaking to the Siya crew, the Serbian-born Pirates supporter said that playing the final over two legs disadvantages some clubs.

“I think they must just take the final to a neutral venue, just like Uefa do with Uefa Champions League Final,” said Miladinovic.

“The current system really does disadvantage certain teams. Even now, I don’t know as to which criteria was used to determine who gets the first leg between Pirates and Al Ahly in the last final.

“Over the years big teams like Ahly always get to play away first and that gives them unfair advantage in my opinion. Had the final been played in a neutral venue, I think Pirates would have won it,” concluded Miladinovic.

Pirates lost 3-1 on aggregate to Al Ahly in the final of the 2013 competition. Bucs held the Egyptian giants to a 1-1 draw at home in Orlando, before losing 2-0 away in Egypt.
