Pirates To Go Dutch Or Mzansi?

Pirates have had three goalkeeper coaches in the last three years, which is a large turnaround for a club of that magnitude and are set to make a big decision once again.

However, as reported by the Siya crew in edition 1224 of Soccer Laduma, the Soweto giants have enquired into the availability of former Cape Town City coach Sjoerd Woudenberg, who recently became available after parting ways with the Citizens.

Woudenberg, who is a UEFA B Licence holder, has proven his capabilities during his time with the Cape outfit and indications are that the Buccaneers have identified the 34-year-old as a possible addition to the club’s technical team next season.

Based on historic evidence, Pirates have more often gone for the European option when it comes to their goalkeeper coach as seen in the club’s last two appointments of Nieminen (Finland) and Andrew Sparkes (Wales), with Rowen Fernandez the club’s only local appointment in recent years.

It now remains to be seen if the Buccaneers will continue their trend of employing foreign goalkeeper coaches, or whether the club will move in a different direction and keep the faith in Sandilands.

 Who do you think the Buccaneers should target to take the club’s goalkeeping department forward, Woudenberg or Sandilands?
