Pirates Should Just Shade It - Lebese 12/12/03
Thabang Lebese believes Orlando Pirates will shade Saturdays Soweto Derby against Kaizer Chiefs because they are hungrier than their archrivals.

And Chillies should know as he is one of few players who have the rare distinction of having turned out for both of South Africas biggest teams in his playing career.

Speaking to This Day newspaper on Friday, the 30-year-old Lebese said: Pirates are very dangerous under Augusto Palacios and they can turn the tables on Chiefs who are also on form. I think Pirates are more hungry though.

Lebese played in the Silver Stars team that ran Chiefs close in last weekends Coca-Cola Cup final, but points to last seasons Coke winners Jomo Cosmos whose form dipped after winning the R2million first prize to illustrate his point.

Winning a major trophy also has a counter-productive effect on most teams and Chiefs could be vulnerable, he is quoted to have said.

It is not possible for a team to stay on top forever without dropping form.

Lebese played 219 games for the Amkhosi, bagging 73 goals. In 22 starts for the Buccaneers he hit the back of the net four times.
