Cape Town - Orlando
Pirates coach Eric Tinkler believes his team reached the CAF Confederation Cup
final in an entertaining manner.
KickOff, Tinkler feels that the brand of football that the Buccaneers displayed
on course to secure a final spot has been a “food advert for football.”
“I think the brand of football has been very good. I don't
think people will complain because the games have been entertaining if
anything," said Tinkler.
“Good for the fans when we lost 4-1 [against Zamalek in
Group B action], not good for us. Good for the fans when Zamalek lost 5-1 and
if you look at our results against Al-Ahly and it is 4-3, it is an entertaining
game," he says, referring to the semi-final win last weekend.
“And that's good for football when we see goals. If it is a
good advert for football in general, I think it is particularly for CAF
competition because as South Africans we need to take these competitions a lot
"I don't think we do and how do we do that? By producing
entertaining football. I think that's how we do it and that will draw the
crowds to be more interested in these competitions."
Pirates will face
Tunisia's Etoile de Sahel in the two-leg final in November.
