Cape Town - Orlando Pirates defender Happy Jele has expressed his intense desire to steer his team to CAF Confederations Cup glory next weekend.

The Buccaneers are looking to emulate their success in 1995 in the CAF Champions League when they take on Tunisia's Etoile du Sahel in the final first-leg of the Confederations Cup at the Orlando Stadium on November 21.

"Pirates have been fighting on higher levels for a while. We always try to build on our legacy as a big club in Africa," Jele reportedly told Umhlobo Wenene FM.

"We want this cup. We want it bad. We want this for South Africa and to build that legacy. The game will be a big challenge for us. Both sides don't know each other, apart from what we've seen versus other teams.

"Everyone is ready to fight for this team so it will be up to the coach to make the best selections.

"Everyone wants to play. We also have plenty of leaders in the side, plenty of quality in all departments so the side is in good hands," he concluded.
