VLADIMIR Vermezovic, the Orlando Pirates coach hoping to rescue the season with a potential Nedbank Cup title on Saturday after a below-par campaign, has perused tapes of the club’s past three cup final setbacks and still has little insight as to what went wrong. The Buccaneers face Bidvest Wits for a R7m bonanza at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban. "All these games were different. The best we can do for ourselves is forget about all the finals we have played this season and focus all our attention on this weekend," said Vermezovic, when asked for his thoughts on the Buccaneers’ defeat against Al Ahly in the Caf Champions League, and back-to-back losses to Platinum Stars in the MTN8 and Telkom Knockout. "It’s not always about those game. That isn’t everything. I understand these guys a little bit more now than before. I have already given out a plan to the management about our preseason and our next actions in the coming months. I will also give them a report and sit down with the chairman (Irv ...
Those calling for my head are clueless, says De Sa Roger De Sa and his players looks dejected after the Telkom Knockout final match between Orlando Pirates and Platinum Stars at Mbombela Stadium on December 07, 2013 in Nelspruit Calls for De Sa's head have grown after the Buccaneers once again surrendered a cup final to Platinum Stars, this time in the Telkom Knockout at Mbombela Stadium on Saturday. Stars pipped the illustrious Soweto giants to claim the MTN8 trophy three months ago, before Egyptian giants al-Ahly added to the Buccaneers' cup woes when they beat them in the Caf Champions League final last month. Though he earned widespread acclaim after he guided the Buccaneers to one of their highest achievements in continental football, support for De Sa has dwindled following the latest loss. The former Wits and Santos coach has been walking a tight- rope and there could be few compelling reasons why he should hold on to his job, following a third successive cup final defeat. Talk, however, is that De ...
The PSL has confirmed the new dates for the fixtures that were postponed this week to accommodate the memorial services for the late former President Nelson Mandela – and Pirates were hardest hit. Pirates will play newly crowned Telkom Knockout champions Platinum Stars on Monday and will be afforded just two days’ rest before playing the University of Pretoria on Thursday – and then taking on Golden Arrows next Sunday, the last day of Premiership matches this season. The Buccaneers languish at the bottom of the log with seven points after five league encounters, largely due to their commitments in the Caf Champions League and domestic cup competitions. The lack of availability of venues forced the PSL to move all the fixtures scheduled to be played this week. Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula said no matches will take place this Sunday when former President Mandela will be buried. December 16: Platinum Stars vs Orlando Pirates Royal Bafokeng Stadium 15h30 December 19: Orlando Pirates vs University of P ...
Football’s such a funny game. The one moment you are a hero and the next you are a nobody... or vice-versa. This came to my mind after rumours emerged that Roger de Sa and Orlando Pirates could be singing Let’s Kiss And Say Goodbye soon, following their 3-2 loss to Bloemfontein Celtic on Saturday evening. It was a cold night in Orlando for the Buccaneers faithful, but the hot seat became even hotter for De Sa. And you’ve got to feel for the man. Not so long ago he was hailed as the man to take Bucs to the Promised Land, and the team came within an inch of conquering Africa, succumbing to Ah Ahly and not least a bit of magic from Mohamed Aboutrika in the final of the Caf Champions League. During the team’s travels into Africa, which De Sa admitted turned him into a stranger to his dog when he came back home, he was christened ‘Roger de Star’ and was given a lot of love by the black and white-clad community. But now a loss to Platinum Stars in the Telkom Knockout final this weekend could sound t ...
Khune Gaxa, Mashamaite, Gould, Masilela Tshabalala, Katsande, Yeye, Lebese Parker, Nkhatha Orlando Pirates Meyiwa Jele, Mahamutsa, Gcaba, Matlaba Myeni, Klate, Manyisa, Jali, Segolela Bacela Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates will meet in the third Soweto Derby of the 2013-2014 season on Saturday, when the two giants of South African football renew their rivalry in a PSL clash at Soccer City. AmaKhosi will be without Knowledge Musona for the all-important derby, due to a shoulder injury sustained by the star striker in the Telkom Knockout. However, Stuart Baxter will be able to call on the services of midfielder Siphiwe Tshabalala after the player was passed fit on Thursday. Chiefs currently sit in fourth place on the PSL standings and will target a win against their greatest rivals in order to match Mamelodi Sundowns on 14 points at the summit of the table. Pirates' PSL season is still in its infancy, as the club has only played two league matches this season, due to their Caf Champions League commitments ...
Musona blow for Chiefs 24 October By SAPA Johannesburg – Kaizer Chiefs striker Knowledge Musona has been ruled out of Saturday's Premiership clash against arch-rivals Orlando Pirates at FNB Stadium. The Zimbabwean international will miss the Soweto Derby because of a shoulder injury sustained in Chiefs' Telkom Knockout win over Free State Stars last weekend. Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter, however, has passed winger Siphiwe Tshabalala fit to take the field for Amakhosi in the country's premier soccer fixture. “We're not even bothered with any late fitness tests for Musona... he'll be out,” Baxter said on Thursday. “There is severe damage and it's not looking that good. Now I'll wait for the doctors who will tell me how long he will be out for. “'Shabba' (Tshabalala) has trained with the team for the last two sessions, so he's definitely fit for selection from his ankle injury.” The main focus this week has been on Pirates, after their superb Caf Champions League run, where the Sowetans booked thei ...
Aces win a confidence boost for Bucs - De Sa Orlando Pirates' 3-1 victory against Mpumalanga Black Aces to reach the Telkom Knockout quarter-finals was a timely confidence boost ahead of their sojourn into Africa to play Esperance Sportive de Tunis, said coach Roger de Sa. Pirates face Esperance in Tunisia on October 19 in the second leg of their Caf Champions League semi-final. Bucs and Esperance drew 0-0 at the weekend. The Buccaneers have struggled to score goal s going into Tuesday night's Telkom Cup last-16 fixture at Mbombela Stadium. Clive Barker's fired-up Aces gave Pirates nervous moments in an end-to-end first half, but Bucs raised their game in the second for an ultimately convincing win. "The good thing is we ... kept knocking the ball around and all the goals we scored were from a build-up and patience," De Sa said. "It was a confidence builder and something to take with us to Tunisia." Meanwhile, De Sa and his Kaizer Chiefs counterpart Stuart Baxter appear to have escaped punishment after ma ...
