On Saturday, June 26 Pirates will be in Congo to face AC Leopards in the CAF Confederation Cup group game.

Sarr told Sport24 that every stage is becoming a challenge which they are ready to face.

“It's good playing in Africa,” the Senegalese international said.

“We are learning a lot and the experience we are gaining in Africa will help us in our local campaign.

“As for Congo, most of the guys in the team have been there before and they know what we should expect and that will help us a lot.

“But we are not taking anything for granted; we will work hard to get the result.”
