Sarr: It’s More Than Just Three Points

Orlando Pirates midfielder, Issa Sarr, insists that the Buccaneers will be playing for more than just the three points in this weekend’s Soweto Derby.

Pirates currently find themselves in 13th place on the Absa Premiership log, nine places behind Kaizer Chiefs who they come up against in the Soweto Derby on Saturday.

Nine points separates the two teams at this early stage of the campaign, however the Buccaneers do have a game in hand.

Sarr has indicated that it is not just the points that Bucs will be after when they take on Chiefs, as there is much more at stake when playing in a derby.

“I have played in a derby before, both here and back home, and it’s one of the most important games in the fixture because it’s more than just the three points that we are playing for,” Sarr told Soccer Laduma.

“You know, for us it’s about us and not Chiefs. We will play to win the game no matter what they plan for us.

“I think we are good in every department and I can’t say where the battle will be won because it’s always tough playing in a derby.”
