Bucs Players Given Day Off

The Buccaneers arrived back in the country on Wednesday morning but were given a day’s rest to recuperate ahead of their Absa Premiership league fixture against the University of Pretoria on Friday night.

Gcaba was part of the Bucs squad that played against CF Mounana in their CAF Confederation Cup first leg, a fixture they drew 2-2 having trailed the match 2-0.

While the issue of Xenophobic attacks rocked the Mzansi shores, the team felt safe and welcome in Gabon, with some of the local supporters even rallying behind the Buccaneers during their stay there.

Gcaba tells the Siya crew that they felt welcome and at home, further adding that there were other local supporters who even prayed with the team after training.

“We felt welcome. They are very humble and welcoming people. I think their attitude towards us also helped us play the way we played. We played very well as a team and we could have even won the game but it’s good that we didn’t lose. It was a good atmosphere and we enjoyed ourselves,” the Bafana Bafana defender explained.

Pirates will resume training today for their league fixture against AmaTuks on Friday night at Orlando Stadium.
