“Pirates’ Players Need To Take Responsibility” – Reader’s Voice

Orlando Pirates have lost games because of their defensive errors and this has been happening before Kjell Jonevret joined the team.

Lack of communication is the reason why the players make silly mistake at the back and Kjell needs to come up with a good strategy to fix Pirates' defence so that the team can get back to winning games on a consistent basis.

Pirates’ management must act and show the players that team is the priority. They must also show support for players. Orlando Pirates is one of the best teams in Mzansi and management needs to take matters into their own hands. It’s time for Dr Irvin Khoza to come up with solution. Players like Thabo Matlaba and Happy Jele must take responsibility for the team's defence.

Even though Pirates have managed to slowly turn results in their favour, it will take leadership both on and off the pitch to truly salvage their season.
