"All Pirates games are pressure no doubt about that. I've played against Pirates many times as a player myself and as a coach and everyone rises to the occasion," he says.

"I'm sure Platinum Stars will be no different. Every game is a Cup Final for the opposition and I know how it feels when you are on the other side. But when you are coaching a team that has been champions two times in a row, I think they know how to win, we just have to keep that going. Like the chairman said to me in our conversation just keeps the ship going," De Sa says.

The coach adds that he won't be making too many changes to the team and that he will continue with what previous coach Augusto Palacios was doing and if there are changes, they may be in personnel.

"There are not many changes to do; I think they have done a fantastic job in the last two years no doubt about that. It is just a question of guiding the ship in the right direction and to keep going.

"I don't think I'm a genius who will just come up with radical new ideas or anything like that. It is just to continue, there are a few problems at the moment but it happens clubs all over the world and we will keep on going," he adds.
