Former Orlando Pirates striker Jerry Skhosana says the club legends are angry at the current players because the club did not do well last season.

Pirates finished at a lowly 11th position last season, and they failed to win any trophy.

“Yes, we’re angry because of the performance of the team last season. When I walk in the street, I have to answer why the team performed badly, and I can’t answer because I’m not close to the players,” said Skhosana during the Pirates jersey launch in Paulshof on Monday.

“I can’t enjoy my legendary status because we all look bad when the team is not doing well. People want to know why, and I can’t answer,” Skhosana added.

The Bucs legend is hoping Pirates will do well this season.

“It’s all about the players’ attitude. They need to fight for that jersey and make sure that the club wins,” Skhosana concluded.
