Coaches Linked With The Pirates Job

Orlando Pirates have been without a head coach since Muhsin Ertugral's dramatic resignation back in November, and a number of tacticians have been linked with the job. Can you remember who they are?

Augusto Palacios has been on the bench on an interim basis since the victory against Highlands Park, but the fans are now getting anxious over why a new name is yet to be appointed.

Dr Irvin Khoza confirmed that the Peruvian would likely be on the bench for six games, but he has already stayed on for a further two matches as the club continues to monitor their options. With the month of January clear of any matches, it would be the perfect time to introduce a new coach.

Former Free State Stars mentor Giovanni Solinas has admitted that he would pounce at the the opportunity to coach the Mayfair outfit one day, while it has also been confirmed by Ruud Krol's representative that he would consider a return to Mzansi.

Benni McCarthy is a name that has been tossed around by the fans as he is yet to get his first head coaching position after qualifying with a UEFA A licence.
