Cape Town - Orlando Pirates legend Edward ‘Magents’ Motale says that the Buccaneers defence is an area of concern if they are serious about lifting the CAF Confederation Cup.
Pirates came from behind to defeat Al Ahly 4-3 at the Suez Army Stadium in Egypt in the second leg of their Confederation Cup semi-final clash.
According to Soccer Laduma, the 1995 CAF Champions League winner believes that Pirates have everything it takes to be champions.
“They were committed to win. They had the will to win. They didn’t just go there to honour the fixture. They really wanted to win more, especially after Al Ahly’s second goal when they continued fighting and things weren’t looking good for them,” he said.
“Also the introduction of Erasmus and Rakhale changed the game and the goal Erasmus scored with his first touch from Rakhale’s cross, which was also his first touch, boosted them and the morale went high.
“I am, however, sceptical at the back. We tend to give away soft goals. If we can shut the back door then the trophy is ours. We have everything that it takes to win this trophy,” Motale concluded.
