Makaringe Opens Up, Lifts Lid On Rulani’s Bucs Era

Orlando Pirates’ poor start to the season has not only been felt by interim coach Rulani Mokwena, who is yet to win a game since taking charge.

But the players are desperate to turn the tide too, according to midfielder Fortune Makaringe, who opened up on the club’s official platforms.

The Buccaneers have endured a winless streak of six matches – four of which were played following the sudden departure of coach Micho Sredojevic, who has since joined Zamalek in Egypt and even won silverware already.

“I knew very well coming here that to play for Pirates comes with a lot of expectations. There are too many Buccaneers all around the continent that look to us to give positive results,” Makaringe, speaking in a video interview posted on the club’s app, said.  

He labelled the current poor spell a “difficult phase”.

“I think and believe that we are still going to do well. The performances have been coming, we have just been unfortunate. The team has been going through a very difficult phase, so that has been very tough. But we are still going to try and make sure that we give good results to finish right there at the top,” explained the midfielder.

Pirates are back in action after a two-week recess forced by the Fifa international break, and the Buccaneers host Chippa United on Saturday in an Absa Premiership clash at Orlando Stadium with Mokwena still looking for the elusive win.
