Cape Town - Following their CAF Champions League final loss, Orlando Pirates vice-captain Happy Jele insisted that his team-mates have learned a lot through the tournament and are more determined to win the domestic league this season to book another ticket to participate in the continental show-piece in 2015.

The Buccaneers lost 3-1 on aggregate to Egyptian giants, Al Ahly, on Sunday night.

In an interview with the Kick-Off website, Jele said he believes they can use the experience gained in the CAF Champions league and apply it in the league (PSL).

He also said they did remarkably well in reaching the final, considering it was the first time in the event for a few players.

"Magents" did not feature in the final alongside industrious midfielder, Andile Jali, as the duo were serving a one-game suspension.

Now the Buccaneers will switch focus to the domestic football, commencing with a tough Telkom Knockout semi-finals against SuperSport United at the Lucas Moripe Stadium in Pretoria on November 23.

Kick-off is at 15:30.
