Bucs Legend On Soweto Derby
Orlando Pirates legend John Moeti backs Bucs win in Soweto derby
Orlando Pirates legend John Moeti has told Soccer Laduma that he is backing the Buccaneers to win the Soweto derby on Saturday.
Moeti has emphasised that Pirates currently look more dangerous than rivals Kaizer Chiefs heading into the colossal encounter.
“I’m really looking forward to this derby in particular. I think this time we could really be treated to some goals something that we’ve not seen in a while,” says the Bucs legend.
“Pirates are in good scoring form and have scored goals in their past couple of matches. They just need to have the mentality to approach this match like any other if they are to score.
"The beauty of the system they are playing is that a lot of their players are in good scoring form meaning that the goals are coming from all over as opposed to a single player. This is a sign of a good team when players in all positions are scoring. It also makes it easier for the coach as this means he has more players who can make an impact,” added the former midfielder.
During his playing days, Moeti who was affectionately known as Dungi, enjoyed a 12-year-long career where he also won the Champions Cup.
Pirates and Chiefs do battle at the FNB stadium on Saturday at 15h30.
