Pirates’ Mahachi to guard emotions in Bulawayo

Pirates’ Mahachi to guard emotions in Bulawayo

11 Jan 2019, 12:50

Orlando Pirates forward Kudakwashe Mahachi is in for a highly emotional event as Orlando Pirates get set to face FC Platinum in his hometown this weekend.

The Sea Robbers and Pure Platinum square up in a CAF Champions League Group B game on Saturday.

“Should I be considered to travel with the team to Zimbabwe, I will certainly be emotional because I’ll be going back home to a place where I grew up. Everybody in Bulawayo supports Orlando Pirates. We grew up watching the team and supporting players like Teko Modise and Joseph Kamwendo, who were an inspiration to watch,” Mahachi told Pirates’ official website.

Mahachi added a surprising piece of information about local giants Highlanders FC.

“The team I played [for] while I was based there, Highlanders FC, modeled themselves around Orlando Pirates. They even adopted the Club’s iconic crossbones salute before the start of their matches,” added the winger.

The former Golden Arrows and Mamelodi Sundowns players also described how Saturday’s spectacle could get highly emotional.

“I have been inundated with calls from back home telling me that they are excited over the prospect of seeing Orlando Pirates play in Bulawayo. They are telling me that they are 100% behind us. They have also been inquiring about the likes of Thembinkosi Lorch, Vincent Pule and the rest of the guys because they follow the team religiously,” concluded Mahachi.
