CAF Confed Win To Earn Tinkler The Job?

With the Absa Premiership seemingly out of our reach, and having been knocked out of the MTN 8 and Nedbank Cup this season, Orlando Pirates do still have one more shot at silverware - in the form of the CAF Confederation Cup.

Eric Tinkler is in charge of the squad on an interim basis and could well be doing all in his power to convince the big bosses at Mayfair that he should retain the job and not be moved back to an assistant role.

Do you think winning the CAF Confederation Cup would be enough to appoint Tinkler as the coach of a club like Orlando Pirates?

I believe so! What more does the man have to do to convince everyone at the club that he has what it takes to lead the club to more success and silverware. On two occasions, Tinkler has proven to be a calming presence in a time of distress.

Tinkler took over as interim coach when former mentor Roger De Sa resigned and managed to hold the fort until Vladimir Vermezovic arrived. Like De Sa, VV resigned after an indifferent season with the club and Tinker once again was appointed as the interim coach.

He has achieved some excellent results so far, and should he enjoy success in Africa, then I feel he deserves to remain as head coach of the club.

Do you agree?
