Orlando Pirates' drive to CAF Champions League

Written By Themba Khumalo on Thursday, May 30, 2013 | Thursday, May 30, 2013

The main reason why Orlando Pirates is doing very well in the 2013 CAF Champions League is because the players like Benni McCarthy, Onyekachi Okonkwo and Takesure Chinyama have certain goals for themselves and their team.

McCarthy for example has stated 1 of that of the reasons why he decided to join Pirates is because he wanted to become the first footballer in history to win 2 different Club Continental Competitions (UEFA Champions League and CAF Champions League).

Okonkwo wants to impress the Nigerian national team selectors, Collins Mbesuma wants to win the CAF Champions League as he has already won Africa Cup of Nations 2012 with Zambia (some of his national team teammates who play for TP Mazembe have already done so) and lastly Chinyama wants to be regain his place in the Zimbabwean national team.

As for the rest of the guys who have been there in the last 2 seasons like Senzo Meyiwa, Andile Jali, Lucky Lekgwathi, Happy Jele, Oupa Manyisa, Daine Klate etc, they want to dominate Africa as they have already dominated South Africa football with Pirates and adding the second star to the club jersey by winning CAF Champions League is their target and going down in history as the greatest Pirates team ever.

I disagree with those who say Coach Roger de Sa is the one who should take the credit for the impressive run, the group of players are hungry for African success.
