Johannesburg - On the back of their CAF Champions League success over the weekend, Orlando Pirates coach Roger De Sa has praised the mental strength of his soccer team.
"The players have been great. We spent four hours this morning sitting in an airport. At no stage did (I) see the players complain.
"They sat there, no food, no drink, and that's what has been good about this bunch of players.
"The players are like soldiers.
"But, the reality is that we've got a game on Wednesday.
The Soweto side thrashed Ahly -- who are the defending champions of the Champions League -- 3-0 in El Gouna and played to a goalless draw at the Orlando Stadium.
