ORLANDO Pirates coach Ruud Krol says their Nedbank cup final opponents Black Leopards should not be lacking any motivation this afternoon.
“I don’t think they need to be motivated for this, they in a final and they facing champions, and everyone wants to beat the champions,” he said after a training session at Orlando Stadium.
“I’m really happy to be in another final but this one will be tough against a team from a lower division. There is no way we can underestimate them.”
Pirates just won the Absa Premiership title and players are understandably still basking in the glory, but Krol wants them to finish on a high this weekend.
“The players must continue like this, what better way to end the season by winning. We are at the top now and this means we have to work harder to be even better, because this team is preparing for the best and we have to be at our best.”
“We have watched a video of them but it is not enough. We will get more information and we will be ready for them.”
Kickoff is at 3pm at the Mbombela Stadium in Nelspruit.-PSL
