Under Milutin Sredojevic and Mokwena's mentorship, Pirates displayed some of the best performances seen from the club in recent seasons.

The Buccaneers posed a serious threat to Mamelodi Sundowns in their Absa Premiership title chase until the penultimate round of league fixtures this past weekend, after the Brazilians secured the title by defeating Ajax Cape Town at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Saturday.

Some of Bucs' most impressive performances this season include their 3-1 win over Sundowns in January, the 4-2 win over Chippa United in February, their memorable 3-1 win over Kaizer Chiefs in the Soweto derby in March, as well as the recent 4-0 win over Bidvest Wits.

Mokoena took to his official Twitter account to describe the 2017/18 season as incredible, with a lot of lessons learnt.


In their last game of the season, Bucs will play against a team they lost to in the first round of the season in Free State Stars, a game to be played at Orlando Stadium on May 12.

@mosekaphofu maggosim, if they play with the same purpose and intent next season, builders will win one trophy or two.

Builders and Maritzburg Utd assaulted us in the league and Nedbank cup respectively, to me, they are my best teams at the moment. The challenge though, is to carry their current form into the new season.
