Ruud Krol recently told the Dutch media that he would welcome a return to South Africa, and that has naturally sparked talk of him being linked with Orlando Pirates.
The Dutchman has often been linked with the club and, despite how much Eric Tinkler has turned Pirates’ season around, his future continues to remain in doubt.
This is why I am asking you, the Pirates fans, who you would prefer to see on the bench?
Krol will forever remain in the club’s history books after leading the Sea Robbers to the famous double treble, where he oversaw the first one, and the second triumph was on the back of his hard work. He loved the Ghost and the Ghost loved him. Let's not forget the football the team played under him.
There is no denying how much Tinkler has turned the club’s form around since he took over from Vladimir Vermezovic just before the Soweto Derby in December last year. The club is currently on a nine-match unbeaten run, but there are some who still feel hesitant about his head coaching capabilities.
It is a difficult one to choose from… Who would you pick – Tinkler or Krol?
