Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema wants Orlando Pirates to make him happy on his birthday on Saturday by beating rivals Kaizer Chiefs in the Soweto Derby.

Malema, a staunch Pirates fan, says he asked Bucs chairman Irvin Khoza to not disappoint him on his birthday on Saturday.

“I support Pirates. Pirates is going to win. It’s my birthday on Saturday, and I asked the chairman that he must not disappoint me,” Malema told TouchHD on Thursday.

The Soweto derby is set to take place at FNB Stadium on Saturday at 3.30pm.
