Tinkler On Thin Ice

Orlando Pirates coach, Eric Tinkler, is skating on thin ice at the Buccaneers, following the club's poor start to the Absa Premiership season.

Pirates are undergoing their worst start to a league campaign for seven years and have now gone five games without a win in the league for the first time since 2013. 

Despite the Buccaneers' good run in the CAF Confederation, where they have reached the final, Tinkler is on thin ice due to the club's poor league form this season.

It is unlikely that the club will find a replacement for Tinkler in the short-term, however if the Buccaneers do decide to part ways with the coach, the club could bring in Augusto Palacios as an interim coach.

Palacios, who takes charge of the MultiChoice Diski Challenge side, has been part of the Pirates family for many years and knows the ethos of the club.
