Cape Town - Orlando Pirates legend Jomo Sono feels some players of his former team were playing for personal glory in Saturday's Soweto derby against Kaizer Chiefs.

The Buccaneers went down 1-0 to their rivals but wasted plenty of good chances to at least get a point at the FNB Stadium.

Sono still holds the record for the most goals in Soweto derbies with nine strikes and gave his thoughts on Saturday's result.

In quotes published on KickOff, Sono said: "Who were you expecting [laughs]? The derby is difficult man, it's difficult.

"He's quick. He's a good player. He's sudden-quick you know."
