Mammila Sends Warning To Pirates Ahead Of Nedbank Cup Semi

Morgan Mammila has warned Orlando Pirates that Chippa United are looking to honour their chairman by winning the Nedbank Cup, and suggested Pirates’ should focus on the league and leave this cup to Chippa. 

Chippa will host Pirates on Saturday afternoon in the semi-final at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium

Mammila is currently on the CAF B Course organised by SAFA, and spoke to media on Thursday about the upcoming fixture.

When asked by iDiski Times whether Chippa could cause an upset against the Buccaneers, Mammila said that, while they respect Pirates, this is a game they are aiming to win, as they are looking to lift this trophy to honour Chippa Mpengesi.

“To be honest, Orlando Pirates it’s the best attacking team in the league right now, far much better than Sundowns,” Mammila said. 

“They’re entry-level more than Sundowns and you see even the previous matches how good they are smoothly. 

“But one thing for sure, don’t forget that Chippa United hasn’t lost to Orlando Pirates this season. And we are at home. And they know when the first match when we played them, they scored with a goal that was supposed to be an offside. It was 1-1. So they owe to us. 

“We will welcome them, we respect them, they are our father, they help us when we need players, but one thing for sure come Saturday, they must just focus on the Champions League, they must leave the Nedbank Cup to Chippa because this cup belongs to Chippa United. 

“I think we need to honour our chairman with this cup.”
