"We Had To Calm Him Down Because He Wanted To Beat The Whole Squad" Says Pirates Coach | Check Who?

Last week, Orlando Pirates were extremely inefficient before giving a crucial goal to end up losing 1-0 to Al Ahly Tripoli, and Richard Ofori was furious.

As it was widely this past Sunday, the Buccaneers lost the second leg of the semi-final by a single goal, but the job already was accomplished with the 2-0 win away in the first leg.

After last Sunday's poor showing, coach Fadlu Davids disclosed that his goalie, Ofori, was not quite himself after the final whistle.

We advanced to the championship game despite having lost 1-0. We came into the locker room and there were emotional issues; Ofori wanted to hit the whole squad at that point, and we had to keep him under control as we had conceded a goal," Davids said, according to iDiskiTimes.

Goalkeepers, as wild as they can be, do not really like to allow goals, and the mood in the locker room after the game was ideal, in retrospect. There were few celebrations.

Orlando Pirates will play the Caf Confederations Cup final against RB Berkane from Morroco who annihilated TP Mazembe. The two clubs will clash in Nigeria. The buccaneers have already took off to the host country.

The whole of South Africa will be rallying behind the buccaneers to lift the cup, I'm sure even some portion of their fierce rivals, Kaizer Chiefs.
