One Of Greatest Pirates Coaches? JZ’s Incredible Record

Having reached 50 matches as the head coach of Orlando Pirates, Josef Zinnbauer has opened up about the highlight of stay with the Soweto giants thus far.

In Pirates’ 2-1 win over Enyimba FC in the CAF Confederation Cup on Wednesday evening, the German coach recorded his 50th official match in charge of the Buccaneers, since his appointment in December 2019.

The 50-year-old has guided Bucs to 30 wins, 14 draws and only 6 losses and has a win percentage of 60, which is the best record of any Pirates coach in over 20 years.

“To be honest, I have not been keeping track of this. But it's good to know I have managed to get 50 games under my belt with a victory last night. At the end of the day, this [results] is what is important,” said Zinnbauer, as quoted on Pirates’ official website.

“On a personal level, this is a nice achievement but as this is a team sport where there’s a lot of other people involved; this achievement is much theirs (technical team and players) as it is mine. Of course, winning the MTN8 was a big one. That was a major highlight for me. But it's now in the past. As the Chairman of the club always says, you cannot dry today’s clothes with yesterday’s sun. Our focus now is what is ahead of us and not what is behind,” the coach added.
