Orlando Pirates

Zinnbauer Comments on Mhango's Reaction To Sub

Orlando Pirates head coach Josef Zinnbauer has commented on Gabadinho Mhango's reaction to being taken off in the second half against Baroka.

The Buccaneers jumped to third spot on the DStv Premiership standings after coming from behind to defeat the Limpopo outfit on Wednesday.

Mhango, who got the equalizer, appeared to be unhappy with the coach's decision to take him off in the final five minutes of the second half.

“I don’t know, you’ll have to ask him. But it is normal you have a substitute. The guy wants to win. He had a lot of chances before and didn’t score. It’s normal as a striker you come out and then you have not a chance to make a goal,” Zinnbauer told SuperSport after the game.

“But he makes a good game, and he scored. It was important for us, he scored the equalizer. It was very important for us close to half-time and he made a good game. But next time if he has the chance, he can score."

Mhango's replacement, Terrence Dzvukamanja went on to bag the winning goal to put Pirates in the driving seat for a third-place finish with one game remaining.
