“We are not going to sit back and allow Orlando Pirates to dictate pace on us. That type of soccer is against our culture of entertaining, attack and defend as a soccer unit,” Kanzari told Cafonline.

“This is the nature of our game. Our success over the past years has been built around taking the game to our opponents. We believe in soccer’s oldest adage that attacking is the best form of defence,” added Kanzari.

Meanwhile, Pirates coach Roger de Sa says it is important for his team not to concede at home.

“We got to remember that this is a two legged semi-finals, so we need to be cautious with our approach,”De Sa told the Siya crew.

“Having said that, it is important for us to take something with us to Tunisia," concluded De Sa.
