Former Orlando Pirates striker, Jerry Sikhosana is baffled by the fact that the Buccaneers aren’t fighting for this season’s league title, given the quality of Eric Tinkler’s side.
Sikhosana believes that Pirates' current form in the league doesn’t echo their true quality. The former striker believes that Pirates should be in the race for the title, and that they’re recent form is a better reflection on their abilities.
"For me if you look at where Pirates stand, it’s the way that they play which doesn’t correspond with their position,” the 46-year-old said.
“They’re too good of a team to be in seventh place. They should be two or three (places higher) and maybe they should also be fighting for the championship.
“But for me, I think they’ve turned a corner and they’re doing well. They’ve been consistently winning and I think they’ll continue from where they left off, " the Bucs legend concluded.
Pirates are currently seventh in the PSL standings, 20 points adrift of league leaders, Mamelodi Sundowns.
