Bucs' Mbele: Every Team Wants To Win The League

Floyd Mbele declares Orlando Pirates not getting ahead after Soweto derby win

By Soccer Laduma - Mar 06, 2018 04:04 PM

Orlando Pirates’ Soweto derby victory over rivals Kaizer Chiefs has put them second on the PSL table, just 4 points behind Mamelodi Sundowns who are on 39 points.

With nine league games remaining, Pirates have effectively become Sundowns' closest competitors for league honours, however, the Parktown-based club refuses to get ahead of themselves and remain focused on playing according to their plans says the club’s Administrative Officer, Floyd Mbele.

“A derby win is always a highlight of the season, more especially in the way we won it. We won convincingly,” said Mbele talking to Soccer Laduma. 

“It’s great for supporters to see goals in what is one of the biggest matches of the PSL calendar. It was a great show for all, however, we won’t make the mistake of getting ahead of ourselves. 

“If you observe, the last nine to eight games of the league tend to be the most unpredictable matches of the season. We are at a stage where anything can happen. Teams tend to win matches they should’ve have lost and vice versa so it’s about playing to your plan and ensuring you follow through.

“If you ask me do we want to win the league, of course, I will say yes. Every team wants to win the league but it's about how you play for 32 matches that determine whether you win the league not one,” concluded the Bucs man.      

Pirates next play Golden Arrows away at the Princess Magogo Stadium on the 17 March. That match will begin 20:15.

Only if you can let them do their job without interference they can win the league, but as I know you you'll jump in to be counted since the team is winning now & spoil the good job done by technical team, after that you'll disappear & let the coach be fired without telling the truth that you were behind the bad results

Its good tht Mr Mbhele comments but what is embearrasing for him is not knowing that to complete the league fixtures teams must have played 30 games not 32 and that no team is left with 9 games now. There is agony in losing as it makes people say uncomprehensible things like winning on paper, and we played they scored!! There is ecstacy in winning bt doing so in a derby is unparralelled. Pls guys stop running to media for small comment.

Stop it Mbele,we don't want to see our coach fighting to convince your official team than building the team for next season.We are the happy people,and accept the technical team's point of building the team for the best.I would be happy to see the team wining the league,but being on the building phase,will be a bonus.Micho and Tulane,please play it wise and pray your hearts out to God only.#UP THE BUCS.

The Searobbers must dig dipper inorder to win the Psl Title. Playing against Arrows, Celtics, Supersport, Amazulu, Wits, Free State Stars is not going to be easy at all for Pirates. I forgot another game for Rats to make 7 games.

Even if they want to win the league, it is not on their hands there are waiting for luck somewhere to halt Sundowns. We are in a good position to win the league before the last game.
