Orlando Pirates’ Siyabonga Mpontshane has apologsed to the supporters for the team’s performances this season.
Pirates are slowly improving their situation in the Absa Premiership after suffering a number of misfortunes in the current campaign.
However, despite the league title being way out of the Soweto giants’ reach, a chance to claim silverware is still a possibility for the Head Coach Kjell Jonevret’s side.
The Buccaneers have booked their place in the semi-finals of the Nedbank Cup after a successful string of results in the competition.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with Soccer Laduma, Mpontshane has shared his views on the remaining weeks left of the 2016/17 season and also apologised to the Buccaneer faithful for the team’s performances.
“For now, we have a chance in Nedbank Cup and we can get it if we want to win it. In the league, it won’t be easy. If we can get inside the top five or top four, that would be good. As a big team, the position we are in right now is not good at all,” he said.
“I want to apologise to them because we didn’t have a good season. We didn’t do it on purpose and, for a big team like Pirates, when we lose by six goals it’s not acceptable. Some supporters think we are doing it on purpose but we are not,” the 31-year-old added.
