We need the fans! – Ncikazi

“I’m really grateful to the supporters who I thought made a huge difference,” co-coach Mandla Ncikazi said as quoted by TimesLive.

“Let me thank the Orlando Pirates supporters. I thought they gave our players the necessary support and we needed that.

“We’re happy. We love their patience and I think they supported the team correctly. There is also a stat that says teams who play at home have got an 80% chance of winning the match.

“If all Orlando Pirates supporters were to come to the stadium I can tell you we would win a lot of matches because Pirates have got so much support that everywhere they go they’ll have supporters.”
