Brighton Mhlongo Wants To Win More Trophies At Pirates
Orlando Pirates goalkeeper, Brighton Mhlongo, thinks that the Buccaneers have gone too long without a trophy and that they need to rediscover their culture of winning trophies.
Bucs last won a major title in 2014 when they lifted the Nedbank Cup. They went the whole of last season without a trophy and have already crashed out of the MTN8 losing their quarter-final clash to Ajax Cape Town.
Pirates will now be looking to break their trophy drought and secure the CAF Confederation Cup, as they have already qualified for the semi-finals. Mhlongo is hopeful Bucs can get back to winning ways and indicated that the success of other teams such as Kaizer Chiefs doesn’t put added pressure on them.
“There is always pressure when we don’t win, irrespective of which other club wins trophies. It is always about us, whether we are winning or not,” Mhlongo said.
“The most important thing for us in the new season is to go back to the drawing board and start winning trophies.”
“I think the last time we won a trophy was the Nedbank Cup in 2014. We need to adapt the mentality and bring back the culture of winning trophies,” he added.
