Bucs Legend Joseph Ngake: There Is A Shock Factor

Orlando Pirates legend says Bucs trip to Zambia is good for CAF preparations

By Soccer Laduma - Jul 03, 2018 07:01 PM

Former Orlando Pirates winger Joseph Ngake says the Buccaneers have taken the right step in preparing for the CAF Champions League by travelling to Zambia as part of their pre-season training.

The crew reported that the Soweto Giants will be jetting off to Zambia in an effort to prepare the team for the upcoming season. Speaking to the crew, Ngake said the trip would be good for Buccaneers.

“This is how South African teams need to prepare when they have qualified to compete in the CAF club tournaments,” said Ngake.

“I have to commend the technical team for their initiative. Since Pirates finished second in the league they realise that competing in the Champions League would need their players to be exposed to playing outside the country against clubs from other African countries.

“I believe when most of our team compete on the continental stage there is a shock factor that creeps in. You find that our teams are unable to play effectively because they become shocked at the conditions and playing style of other teams,” added the former Bucs winger. 

“This trip will serve the Pirates players especially the new players who have joined the club who have never played in the CAF competitions before. Teams such as Mamelodi Sundowns have proven in recent times that travelling to other countries is beneficial for the team and in preparing the team both mentally and physically,” he concluded.

Meanwhile, the crew also reported that the Sea Robbers who have made significant signings could use the trip to possibly make further attempts to sign Lazarous Kambole who has been on the club’s radar. 

The Soweto giants are currently based in Nelspruit for their pre-season camp.
