Shades of 1995 in Bucs side
ORLANDO Pirates assistant coach Teboho "Tebza Ngwana" Moloi reckons the team assembled by the mighty Buccaneers this season will be an all-conquering one.
"It reminds me of the Class of 1995 that went on to become the only southern African side to win the African Champions League," said Moloi, who was part of that squad, yesterday.
"We were all hungry for success. That is the kind of spirit I have been observing with this team since we started pre-season training.
"We did very well against Mamelodi Sundowns in the Mbombela Cup, and went on to beat Kaizer Chiefs in the Carling Cup before eliminating Bloemfontein Celtic (in the MTN8)," said Moloi.
"It is still early, but I can put my head on the block and predict without any doubt that Pirates will be unstoppable this season."
Bucs start the league campaign against Golden Arrows at Orlando Stadium on Friday at 8pm.
Midfielder Oupa "Ace" Manyisa and Thabo Matlaba have been declared fit for Friday's game.
