Supporters Club

'In My Day Stadiums Were Full.'

Something very exciting is happening in Supporters Club, we have our first member of SLSC that is also a former player. Orlando Pirates legend Bongani Cashibe becomes our first legendary SLSC member and he sits with us for a short interview.

Beaver Nazo: Bongani, kunjani butiwam?

Bongani Cashibe: Hey Beaver, I’m all good buti, alive and kicking.

BN: Let’s get straight to it, you played for Pirates and in your day, even if the stadium is not full, but you guys use to always get descent crowds. Why is that not the case anymore?

BC: it’s very simple. In our day, Chiefs use to have players like Scara Ngobese and Pirates to have players like Tso Vilakazi, Gift Leremi, Duku Duku Makhanya, crowd pullers. Today the problem is that players are restricted, they are not free to express themselves. In our day the supporters would know whose gonna play and couldn’t wait to see them in action. Today you have your Qalinges that can do that but you can see that they are restricted.

BN: Any message to the team and its supporters?

BC: As a former Buccaneer and a legend, thank you to all of you. Pirates will never fall, They say once and always a Pirate. To the supporters, when Pirates are trailling, keep on motivating them. Pirates can score at any stage of the game, from the first minute to the last one!

What is your message to our legend?
