Orlando Pirates skipper Happy Jele believes their new jersey will bring them luck and end their five-year trophy drought in the up-coming season.

The Bucs captain was speaking during the unveiling of the team’s 2019/2020 jersey, which resembles the 1995 Pirates jersey where they went on to win the Caf Champions League trophy.

“The kit is very nice and the fabric, it’s quality and it is very light. You feel comfortable when you are wearing it and I believe that when we are wearing it this coming season it will bring back the glory days,” said the Bucs defender.

Jele will be hoping their luck starts this coming weekend when they take on rivals Kaizer Chiefs in a pre-season Cup game that Carling Black Label Cup at the FNB Stadium.
