There is support for Orlando Pirates to unseat Mamelodi Sundowns as the PSL champion.
This decade, Sundowns has dominated South African football, winning the last six Premiership championships.
THE ORLANDO PIRATES ARE PREPERING SOMETHING SPECIAL.
But it appears that Mayfair is experiencing some sort of activity.
Former Orlando Pirates left-back Innocent Chikoya thinks the Soweto Giants might have a fantastic season this year.
He believes that the preseason and transfer window all point to an outstanding campaign for Orlando Pirates.
Riveiro’s ability to lead his team forward is something he believes in.
Pirates have something significant in the works. They are preparing something exceptional for the upcoming season,” Chikoya stated, as reported by Goal.com.
“From my point of view they have made good signings and they have done very well in the off-season. The most important part of the whole process is that they have kept the core of the team from last season.
“This will make it easy for the new players to gel and fit in with the rest of the team. This is very good for continuity.
“They have a squad which is capable of defending the trophies they won last season. They can go all the way and win the league as well and do well in Africa.
“That’s why I am saying they are cooking something big. The technical team knows what to do and that’s why they had a good pre-season training both in Spain and locally.”
The season ahead will test their depth as they attempt to balance their domestic obligations with a strong performance in the Caf Champions League.
