It doesn’t matter! – Jose Riveiro

“It doesn’t matter (what happened in the first leg)! It’s about us (today) to perform to our best,” the Orlando Pirates coach said as quoted by IOL.

“It’s our home game against a good team and an opponent that is already leading 1-0, so it’s a challenge, but we love the challenge!

“We’ve said a few times that we are coming from difficult results and in three different competitions,” Riveiro said, before adding that this might be a blessing in disguise.

“Sometimes those results are convenient during the process. To understand that when you are not your best and don’t have the proper mindset, you can easily look like a different team.”
