We’re hard workers – Jose Riveiro

“We are hard workers – that’s why we manage to get trophies. There’s nothing else besides that, and we want to repeat the same this season,” Orlando Pirates coach Jose Riveiro said as quoted by IOL.

“When I think about this competition, I can only think about beautiful memories in all the games we played. Some extraordinary memories in the semi-final and final.

“So, we want to be there again. But the way to do that is to win every game in the competition. This is a knockout game, and not the league.

“Surprises and nice history always happen for these types of games. We want to take it seriously; we are going to play one team which will show it wants to win as well.”
