Seema has no remorse for Pirates


Celtic have proven party-poopers recently, having restricted Absa Premiership title challengers Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates to just a point apiece in back-to-back clashes this week.

Despite Tuesday's 1-1 stalemate, results elsewhere allowed Pirates to go top of the table on goal difference, but had they collected maximum points, they would have enjoyed some breathing room at the summit.

But the former Buccaneers skipper, who spent five years in the black and white, showed no remorse for his old club as he instead rued the missed opportunity for his current employers to relieve some pressure in their claim for a top-eight spot.

“This team was good to me and it will always be my home, you could see even how I greeted Ous’ Thandi [Merafe – Pirates’ Media Officer]. I’ve got a lot of memories here,” admitted Seema.

“Like the first game we played against Thanda Royal Zulu when this [Orlando] Stadium was opened – that memory will forever stay with me.

“But it’s just that now I’m at work and they are at work – coach Micho was my coach back then and now we meet [as opponents], I’m sure he’s happy to see one of his players growing like this.

“For them to be sitting in number one and I’m at number eight is not sitting well with me. I wish I could have taken all three [points] and then I could have been in position six, which would ease the pressure a bit. But we’ll keep on fighting. With seven games to go, the pressure is on.”
