Premier Soccer League (PSL) Acting CEO, Cambridge Mokanyane has heaped praise on Orlando Pirates and SuperSport United following their gutsy performance during their continental outings.

SuperSport United recorded a hard-fought goalless draw away from home against Egyptian side, ENPP in the CAF Confederations Cup encounter on Friday night. Reigning Absa Premiership champions, Orlando Pirates laboured to an emphatic 3-1 victory against highly rated Democratic Republic of Congo outfit, TP Mazembe in the CAF Champions League fixture at the Orlando Stadium on Saturday night.
Pirates will now travel to Lubumbashi for the return leg where all they need to do is to keep the highly-rated Mazembe at bay. Meanwhile, SuperSport will host ENPP at home for a return leg.

Mokanyane said: “The results by both clubs Orlando Pirates and SuperSport United is good news for our country. I’m very happy to see that we have turned things around when playing clubs from the continent. As one of the major leagues in the African continent, it is important for the Premier Soccer League to also show their dominance on the field.”

The PSL Acting CEO wished both clubs luck: “We are fully behind SuperSport United and Orlando Pirates. Their success is also our success. I urge all South Africans to get behind the two clubs.”
