Bucs Management Divided On Tinkler

The Siya crew has learnt that Orlando Pirates are in the process of reviewing their technical staff, with the focus being on care-taker coach, Eric Tinkler.

Tinkler To Risk Majoro Ahead Of Soweto Derby 

Sources close to the Parktown-based club have indicated that Pirates' top brass are yet to reach unanimity on whether Tinkler should remain as head coach of the Soweto giants on a more full-time basis or whether a more experienced coach should be appointed into the role.

So far the 44-year-old former Bidvest Wits player has been at the helm of the Bucs ship in eight league games in which he has led them to five straight wins in all competitions.

Ironically discussions on his future are being conducted ahead of the Soweto Derby, which was the first match Tinkler led the Bucs players, following his appointment as caretaker coach subsequent to Vladimir Vermezovic’s resignation in December last year.

With Pirates yet to register a victory over their arch nemesis this season having lost out to them in the league and in the MTN8 final, a victory over Kaizer Chiefs in the return derby could add prominence on his cause to be appointed as head coach permanently.

“It is a tough situation as far as the issue of Eric Tinkler is concerned,” revealed a Siya source.

“He has done very well so far, but it’s not clear whether they want him to stay as others are not supporting that idea…” adds the source.
