Pirates Want Continental Football

Orlando Pirates set sights on continental football

By Soccer Laduma - Apr 06, 2018 09:38 AM

Orlando Pirates have set their sights on competing in the CAF Champions League as they continue putting pressure on current log leaders, Mamelodi Sundowns.  

Though the Buccaneers have come out repeatedly state that they are not ready to win the league title as yet, the club’s Administrative Officer Floyd Mbele has informed the Crew that his club is targeting a finish which will enable them to qualify for the Champions League.

“As a club, we want to play continental football. That’s a space which we have competed in and done well,” Mbele told the crew.

“Playing teams from other African countries is our ambition. We have emphasised this even in the signings we’ve made.”

“Our technical team is well equipped in steering the team towards achieving this ambition. We want to re-establish our footing within Africa once again and this vision serves as a principal item for the club,” concluded Mbele.

Since Pirates have missed out on the Nedbank Cup, which ensures the winning side automatic qualification to the CAF Confederations Cup, Pirates would either have to win the league or finish in the second position to qualify for the Champions League.

Third place will gain the Soweto giants an entry into the CAF Confederations Cup.

I don't watch Dunu matches anymore because they don't attract fans...there is no vibe atmosphere whenever they play just to prove Sundowns is a small team.

I asked my friend(Pirates' fan) if he's also buying that slogan of "building the team" and he responded...."No No No,We are gunning for the league, we are not a small team. All these building anthems are just to make Downs to relax". Hehe hehe hehe

How could a coach who won so many league titles from different leagues on his arrivals tell the team he started with at the beginning of the season that he's building? It is clear that Micho's CV scares Pirates' family to the extent that Micho's say is final.
