LET me congratulate Pirates for their sterling performance against Zamalek on Saturday night. The win for the Buccaneers is the win for the whole nation and this is the kind of football that we are all expecting from our teams in South Africa.
Pirates are the first team in the southern hemisphere to outclass a world class team like Zamalek, winning by a big score of 4-1. Thanks to all the strikers who bang in the goals and Pirates are certain to go far in this competition with the kind of attacking football they are playing.
All the players had 120% commitment from the time the game started, and my blood was also black and white as the Buccaneers represented the whole nation.
If we are proud about our soccer, we will always give our full support especially when our teams are playing against other countries, even if it's SuperSport or Kaizer Chiefs as they are representing not only themselves but the nation.
Pirates must continue the momentum and still keep the same spirit going forward. They will make history by beating all the highly respected teams with big names as they did on Saturday night.
Well done coach and well done also to all the players, it was a team effort and we are very proud of you
