With one round of PSL fixtures left to play, the Buccaneers will finish the season in second place on the log. No team can catch them, sat on 52 points, with Mamelodi Sundowns having already clinched the league title.

Under the guidance of coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic and his technical team, in their first season at the helm after a disastrous 2016/17 campaign for the club, Bucs have also booked their spot in the CAF Champions League for next season with their second placed position on the PSL log.

Former captain of the side, John Moeti, has praised Sredojevic and the team for their showing this season.  

“You will remember that Pirates come from a very difficult season (2016/17), and I believe that the coach has had positive impact in instilling that self-belief again, because the morale was dead. So bringing in new players when there was no morale, and the team having failed to qualify for top eight, was always going to be very difficult,” said Moeti.

Moeti won the CAF Champions League with Pirates in 1995, and was also a South African senior national team player.

“They (Pirates) had to blend in the new players with the team in no time and I think they did that very well. They also had to restore the confidence from the supporters, which they also did with aplomb,” concluded the former midfielder, known as Dungi in football circles.
