Klate was one of Bucs’ heroes in 2011 when the Soweto giants won the TKO after beating Bidvest Wits 3-1 at the Moses Mabhida Stadium.  

The cup won by Klate and his Pirates teammates remain the only TKO silverware in the club’s trophy cabinet.

With the Buccaneers set to play against Baroka in this year’s final at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium this weekend, the Chippa United star has spoken to Pirates about his memories of 2011 when he, Thulasizwe Mbuyane and Isaac Chansa scored the goals that helped the team win the match and the club's first-ever TKO trophy.

“Very, very nice memories of winning the Telkom Knockout. We also used the 75th year anniversary shirt that particular year when we won the Telkom with Pirates. So, very, very fond memories for me and I’m very, very honoured to have been part of the team. I think it was the first time we won that cup. I think for the team and for the club as well,” Klate told Bucs as quoted on the club’s social media platforms.

“Obviously, with the final coming up this weekend against Baroka I think the club has a good chance to get another Telkom Knockout victory,” he said.
