Cape Town - Orlando Pirates striker Thamsanqa Gabuza believes it’s time to move on from the Buccaneers' CAF Confederations Cup disappointment.

Pirates came out second best in the continental competition after losing 2-1 on aggregate in the final to Etoile du Sahel of Tunisia.

It was a breakthrough tournament for Gabuza, who won the Golden Boot for his six goals throughout the competition.

Although pleased on a personal level, the bulldozing forward wants his team to refocus on their domestic obligations, where they next face Mamelodi Sundowns on December 20th.

"I am happy that I was the leading goalscorer. I have been working hard. I have grown a lot and it has motivated me a lot," Gabuza told Sowetan.

"Playing against top teams like Zamalek motivates you. Also playing with top players helped me improve.

"We have to focus on the PSL now. The coach Eric Tinkler has told us that the CAF is gone and now we need to do well and try to do well in the Nedbank Cup.

"I will continue to work hard to reach my target in the PSL."
