Cape Town - Orlando Pirates coach Eric Tinkler admits that
winning trophies is what lured him to coach at the Sowetan club.
According to Soccer Laduma, the Buccaneers saw off Al Ahly
1-0 in the first-leg of their CAF Confederation Cup semi-final last weekend.
With Egypt beckoning for Tinkler’s charges on Sunday,
October 4 for the second-leg, the former Bafana Bafana midfielder reveals they
will give it their “best shot” to book their place in the final.
“I came here to Orlando Pirates to win trophies. This is the
first one we stand a good chance of achieving now,” Tinkler said.
“We are one step away from reaching the final so we are
going to give it our best shot. I know I will always give it my best shot.
“It would be fantastic to win because it is a trophy the
club has never won. We would like to put it in the trophy cabinet, but it will
not be easy.”
Kick-off is at 20:30 (SA time).
