Pirates Adding Experience On And Off The Field

Orlando Pirates Have Added Experience In Their Office

By Soccer Laduma - Jul 05, 2017 10:02 AM

It seems like Orlando Pirates are not only adding experience on the field but off it as well, as the club begins its planning for the 2017/18 season.

The club’s first major signing during this window is the experienced Thamsanqa Sangweni from Chippa United and it is expected that the central midfielder will add the much-needed experience to the team.

The Soweto giants will also have the brains of Derek Blanckensee in their office to carry them through in their day to day operations. 

The former PSL general manager joined the Buccaneers in an administrative role and it is understood he plans to assist the club in their turnaround plans for the 2017/18 season. 

“He will be doing administration work. He is good in administration and with matters to do with paperwork and stuff,” said the source.

Having previously held a role of Chief Executive Officer at Bidvest Wits among some top football jobs he has had, Blanckensee is one of the experienced and respected administrators in Mzansi.

Pirates need to learn the soccer innovation and changes and start implementing change strategy to improve fighting spirit amongst players . an example will be to look at Downs change management and copy. at Downs we atlk a lot about CBD ( Castro, Billiat, Dolly), Then form droped and dolly left change came in and we talk about LaViTa ( Lafour, Vilakazi, Tau) again their form drop and one by one they were benched and now their supporters are singing TKZ (Tau, Kekana, Zwane) with Lafour, mabunda and the likes stil showing hunger. 3 season ago at Pirates we talk about Manyisa, Gabuza, Makola, Matlaba and sing praises but even today we still talking about them for wrong reason though. change is needed and change is good
