“Herentals not a tough side” – Pirates coach

By Innocent Muchochomi in Chegutu

Chegutu Pirates coach Emmanuel “Ras Day” Gutu, who needs an outright victory in their last encounter against Herental College U/20 on Saturday at Pfupajena Stadium, said he will unleash all weaponry to make sure they neither lose nor draw this game which is their passport to domestic Premiership.

In an interview with The Observer , confident bubbling Ras Day unafraidly stressed that even if Herentals are not a tough side they will be extremely cautious as they risk faltering at the last hurdle.

“Playing Herentals is not really a tough encounter but I want to say we will cross the bridge when we get there.”

” We know but we will sit down and analyse how they have been playing with other teams then come up with the best solution to thwart them so that we attain Premier status.”

“I’m sure we will win. ”

“When I took over as Pirates head coach, the nervous doubted us but we stood the tide.”

” We are now just a step away from Premiership and there is nothing to be scared of,” said Gutu

Pirates have 68 points and are on top of the Northern Region Soccer league leading with a slender point ahead of second-placeded Black Mambas and set to taste elite football for the first time if they win this crucial match

If fortune favors Pirates over the weekend, Gutu, born and bred in Chegutu, will be in soccer history books as the first coach to guide a Chegutu side into Premier league
