Jose Riveiro Hails Orlando Pirates' 'Incredible' Defending.

Pirates' "Incredible" Defending is praised by Head Coach Jose Riveiro.

Following his team's victory over Royal AM, Orlando Pirates head coach Jose Riveiro lauded the "amazing" defense of his team.

At the Moses Mabhida Stadium on Wednesday night, Deon Hotto's first-half goal was sufficient to give the Buccaneers a narrow victory.

When the team recovered the ball, the Spaniard was a little let down, but he was impressed with the defensive aspect of the match.

Riveiro said to SuperSport after the game, "Very nice 60 minutes from us, plenty of positive things, very professional effort here tonight."

"Today's defensive effort was fantastic, in my opinion. We were not pleased with how we recovered the ball; we could have spent more time holding possession in the second half to avoid suffering as much.

"But, even though we were defending a little lower than we would have liked, I don't recall a single clear chance for a really excellent club like Royal AM.

It was wonderful to see the men battling this way today, so praise goes to our team, coaching staff, players, and everyone else.

The Spanish player enjoys the season's internal competitiveness within the team.

"He is a fantastic example since he works as hard as everyone else. The competitiveness within the squad is fierce. Today was evidence of our steadfast commitment to our season's goals, "Added he.

"Yes, you can see the men coming off the bench, and whether it's 40 minutes or ten minutes, they give it their all. That's how the squad can succeed in the future."
