Orlando Pirates aims for the CAF Champions League

The South African team has returned to the tournament since they were runner-ups in 2013 when they lost against Al-Ahly

The last time the Orlando Pirates were in the CAF Champions League was in 2013.

That year the South African team was beaten in the final by Egyptian club Al-Ahly.

And since then, the Soweto giants have been missing from the continental action.

According to chairman Irvin Khoza, the team will look to strengthen all its line to try to win the CAF Champions League.

“We are hoping to kick-start the Champions League in the best possible way. This is a very important competition to us,” coach Milutin Sredojevic was quoted by Goal.

“Special thanks to our supporters, they have been with us through thick and thin. We are inviting our supporters to come and help us kick-start our campaign in the Caf Champions League.”

“If we look behind ourselves, there are so many things to be proud of,” Sredojevic added.

“Shonga and [Augustine] Mulenga are coming from a setback as Zambia failed to qualify for the Africa Cup of Nations for the second time in succession.”
