After a winning start, Riveiro sends a message to Bucs supporters.

 

After starting the DStv Premiership season with a win, Pirates head coach Jose Riveiro is optimistic that more fans will visit the stadium.

Bienvenu In the first Soweto Derby on Saturday, Eva Nga’s goal in the first half was sufficient to secure a 1-0 victory over Swallows FC.

“It’s beautiful absolutely. Hopefully, game after game more people come into the stadium we going to need them like I said. It’s nice to play with them so I’m very happy,” Riveiro told SuperSport TV.

“Absolutely, we can always do it better. We have a moment in the second half that we didn’t control the game as we would like to do.

“So, credit also for the opponent they were trying to find solutions after halftime and we took too much time for us to start performing in the second period.

“But I think the first 20-25 minutes of the game there was a good version of ourselves. We need to manage to keep it during more time.

“But still even in the moments where were not comfortable and like I said controlling the game and like I said the guys still doing very well- defending when we have to defend and committing when we have to commit so happy with the performance.”

He continued, “Both teams had chances. Richard [Ofori] was a couple of times super in the second half. We have situations for the second goal in the first half so we can have a more calm second period.

“Even in the second half, we had transitions and other situations we had chances to score so definitely it wasn’t a 1-0 game.”
