Palacios' Impressive Numbers With Bucs

Augusto Palacios has been named as Orlando Pirates' interim coach until December, and it is a position he is all too familiar with – not to mention one he has succeeded in before. Can you remember just how well he did?

The Peruvian mentor took charge of the club between March and September 2012, overseeing 16 games following Julio Leal's dismissal.

While he may have ended that 16-match run with two defeats – a semi-final loss to SuperSport United and a league defeat to Moroka Swallows (both 3-0) – he went on a 14-game unbeaten run prior to that.

In fact, Palacios' side recorded 30 points out of a possible 48, and made the semi-finals of the MTN8 too.

What is also important to note, though, is that Palacios recorded five straight victories – recorded over two different seasons – with the Sea Robbers, as well as a 3-2 win over rivals Kaizer Chiefs in his debut on Bucs' bench.

The first three results of that five-match winning run saw Palacios lead Pirates to the 2011/12 Absa Premiership title following a 4-2 victory over Golden Arrows on the final day of the season.

Palacios certainly has a promising history with the club, but it remains to be seen whether or not he can turn things around at the club.

What do you make of these figures?
