“It is not about Kaizer Chiefs or doing a favour for them, what is important is to focus on ourselves because we are a big team, we all know that.”
These are the words of Orlando Pirates left winger Luvuyo Memela speaking ahead of their vital Absa Premiership clash against Mamelodi Sundowns on Wednesday evening at Orlando Stadium.
A win for Pirates or even a draw will benefit their arch-rivals Chiefs in the title race but Memela says they are only focusing on themselves and their game against Sundowns.
“We need to focus on ourselves and not worry about other people because what is important is us, we are trying to make sure that every game we perform, we are trying to improve, that’s all we are focusing on, ” said Memela, who has played 7 times for Pirates in all competitions this season.
Second-placed Sundowns will be looking to cut down the 9-point lead the Glamour Boys have over them but it won’t be easy for them away at Orlando against a Pirates side that is yet to taste defeat under their new mentor in Josef Zinnbauer.
