Cape Town - Brand de Villiers, the Premier Soccer League Chief Executive, has congratulated Orlando Pirates for reaching the
semi-final stages of the CAF Confederations Cup.
The PSL club marched to the last four phase of
the Confederations Cup thanks to their gallant display this past weekend at the
Orlando Stadium where they beat Congolese side, AC Leopards 2-0 in what was a
polished performance on Saturday night. This took them a step closer to reaching
the Confederations Cup final.
"Orlando Pirates have done the PSL and the country proud during their CAF
Confederations Cup campaign," De Villiers said.
"We would like to congratulate their chairman,
management, coaching staff under Eric Tinkler, the players and supporters for
this great achievement.
"Of course there is still work to do in the semis by the
players but we also need to celebrate this moment and applaud their tenacity."
The PSL CEO added: "As the League, we have always
backed our clubs to do well in continental championships because the experience
gained benefits not only them but also the country. We have to rally behind
them to go all the way."
