“Pirates Were Overloaded”

Phumudzo Manenzhe Expects Oupa Manyisa To Bounce Back

By Soccer Laduma - Aug 03, 2016 03:30 PM

Former Orlando Pirates striker, Phumudzo Manenzhe, has explained that the club’s preseason preparations have tired them out, which is why they failed to win in the Carling Black Label Cup against Kaizer Chiefs.

Mathoho, Macha Seal Derby Win For Chiefs

Pirates suffered a 2-0 defeat in the preseason curtain raiser and the 32-year-old has explained that it would be unfair to single out players for the disappointing performance on Saturday.

“When it comes to preseason games, you wouldn’t say that someone in particular was disappointing,” he explained. “You could see that some of the players’ legs were heavy because of the preseason training.

“You have to take into consideration that Pirates had gone away for a week or 10 days to Potchefstroom to prepare. But you could really see that they were overloaded and that happens in preseason.”

No Formal Offers For Bucs’ Majoro

Manenzhe went on to say that, despite the disappointing work on the pitch, goalkeeper Brighton Mhlongo put in a great performance between the posts.

“If I could pick a standout player for Pirates, I would say it was Brighton Mhlongo in goal. He really had a terrific game,” he concluded.

Hey wena mlisa, usuyabheda manje. Overloaded with what? How long has OPFC been on pre-season? They only played two games man. Stop commenting about Pirates if you do not have inside information.

Chiefs players were just too much for pirates players to contain, khomphela boys are running especially Twala Mhlongo nearly cried bcz Twala 's shots were hurting his hands.

If preseason can cause tiredness, it means its unwise to put it in practice

Mara what makes rats think they cant loose to chiefs? What this stupid rats legend is telling us is that rats were supposed to play coming straight from the tarvern,chiefs also had pre season,we will dominate these rats in terms of derby wins until they run out of excuses,cocaine is doing a lot of harm to rats and that is why psychiatric wards are full of rats supporters.
