Neeskens warning for Pirates

2011-08-19 11:30

Johannesburg - Johan Neeskens has warned Orlando Pirates their tag as favourites for the MTN8 semi-final will count for little on match-day.

The Buccaneers continue their defence of the title against Neeseken's Mamelodi Sundowns in the first leg of the last-four at the Orlando Stadium on Sunday.

Both sides will head into the clash on a high after claiming victories in their respective PSL encounters midweek, and the Brazilians coach insists his side have what it takes to topple Julio Leal's men.

"We will be playing a good a team that proved their ability by winning a treble last season," Neeskens told Times Live.

"They also hold the advantage of resting an extra day more than the other teams in the semi-finals.

"So, of course, they should be the favourites to win it, but favourites can also lose."

    Coach, your players looked tired against Pirates, but tell me did you do enough pre-season training, i mean Pirates were still running even after 85th minutes, hence their winning goal whilst your players were sluggish. next time substitute Nyatama timeously if he starts, he is more of an impact player just like Mayambela, play him when you are already 3-0 upfront with 10 minutes to go neh, and, get a ball winner in the middle, Moriri does quite cut it.
