JZ Comments On Pirates Subdued Transfer Window…

Compared to their rivals Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns, Orlando Pirates have had a relatively quiet transfer window. The club's coach has now commented on this.

Chiefs have beefed up their squad with nine new signings, while Sundowns have added six new faces to their squad. That is in stark comparison to Pirates’ four new signings.

In a recent media briefing club head coach Josef Zinnbauer commented on why the Buccaneers opted against making wholesome changes to the squad that won the MTN8 and reached the CAF Confederations Cup last season.

“ This is a discussion we don’t have here; we cannot talk about transfers here. What I can say is that a coach always wants strikers, we saw last season what happened. We had to play with a false nine for a long time and then the second striker was (Deon) Hotto, who is normally not a striker so now we have to pray we get (Tshegofatso) Mabasa and (Zakhele) Lepasa back quickly and we have one of the young strikers in the squad to see if we can get success.

Other things we will see what happened,” JZ explained.

 So far, Pirates have roped in Kwanda Mngonyama, Goodman Mosele, Bandile Shandu and Monnapule Saleng who has been loaned out to Swallows for the season.

The Siya crew also reported that Pirates have signed red-hot Evidence Makgopa from Baroka FC, but indications are that the club have decided to loan him back to Bakgaga for the rest of the season.
