'Last season we won the MTN8 and this year everything is gone' - Bucs Star Ahead Of CAF Final

Orlando Pirates is one of the biggest clubs in the country for a reason and they have proved this. They haven't been enjoying the best form domestically, however they have performed beyong expectations in the CAF confederations cup. They jetted out of the country on Wednesday afternoon for the final which is due to take place in Nigeria on Friday. This will be the last opportunity for the club to finish off with silverware.

This star joined Orlando Pirates in 2020 and quickly went on to become a key member of the squad and a regular starter. He has made 26 appearances in the league for the Buccaneers this season. He is a player who has the ability to change the game, however he is often criticized for his decision making more especially in the final third.

Deon Hotto spoke with Mazola Molefe on SABC Sports about the upcoming final against RS Berkane. He shared that the club has lost out of all the domestic competitions on offer and they will have to win the CAF confederations cup. He also highlited the opportunity for him and his teammates to write their names in the history books and cement their status.

“When I joined Pirates that was the aim…to come here and win silverware for the team and this is my second year. Last season we won the MTN8 and this year everything is gone, the league, Nedbank, MTN8 what’s left for us now it’s the Confederation Cup that will be on Friday so we have to go all out and get this,”

He shared that the club learned a lesson after crashing out of the competition in the quarterfinals at the hands of Raja Casablanca last season. He then turned his attention towards their upcoming opponents and shared that they have prepared and they are ready for them.

“Yah, you are right last season we went out in the quarter finals against North African team which was against Raja Casablanca and we’ve learned a lot. We have experience that’s why we are in the final now so we will definitely face a team that is quiet very good technically, very good coach, who was at TP Mazembe and now with them. We are ready for them”
