Orlando Pirates Coach Urges Nigeria to Support His Side in the Final of CAF Confed Cup

Orlando Pirates coach has urged Nigeria to support his side in the CAF Confederations Cup final.

The Buccaneers will face Moroccan side RS Berkene in the final of the CAF CC this Friday.

The game will be held in a neutral venue in Nigeria.

Pirates coach Fadlu Davids is hopeful that the club Olisa Ndah comes from Akwa United fans will rally behind the Buccaneers in support of their former player.

Ndah joined the Buccaneers at the beginning of the season following a fruitful stint with Akwa where he won the league title and broke into the Nigerian national squad.

The player will return to a stadium where he made history last season and he will be looking to add to his history books and help his side to win the Continental tournament.

Speaking during a media briefing on Tuesday, Davids said they are quite happy with the neutral venue and the coach insisted that it was going to be a different story if the final was held in Morocco.

"I urge the Nigerian fans to come and support us, their prodigal son returns to the Stadium," he said.

Davids added that the neutral venue could be their home ground because they will have a 12th man in the field.
