My Dream Team: Edward Motale

Orlando Pirates legend Edward 'Magents' Motale has revealed his dream team of former teammates and those he would have loved to play with.

Now 53, the Mamelodi-born defender starred for the club between 1994-97, with his most famous moment lifting the African Champions Cup as Pirates captain in 1995.

He won five major trophies with The Buccaneers: the National Soccer League (1994), CAF Champions Cup (1995), CAF Super Cup (1996), Bob Save Super Bowl (1996) and the BP Top 8 (1996).

Here Motale selects his best all-time team consisting of former teammates and those he would have loved to play with, and names the legendary Clive Barker as his dream coach.

"What I liked about him [Barker] is that he believed in everybody's strength," Motale tells KickOff.com.

"If you were a ball-juggler he would tell you 'go there and dribble these people'. He used to tell Doctor [Khumalo] 'why don't you give these people a few shibobos' and he would say to Shoes Moshoeu 'please dance'.

"He was not coaching with a certificate, he had this thing in him. He used to play people according to their strengths. He would say to Eric Tinkler and Linda Buthelezi 'please kick them'."
