Pirates Assessing MDC Situation
Orlando Pirates to assess the appointment of new MDC Coach
Orlando Pirates are assessing their situation following the departure of club’s MultiChoice Diski Challenge coach, Rayaan Jacobs who has reportedly joined Cape Town City as Benni McCarthy’s assistant.
Soccer Laduma reported that Jacobs was left the Buccaneers to link up with City. Now sources close to the Parktown-based club have indicated that Pirates are assessing the situation and may only appoint a coach for the new campaign.
As reported by Soccer Laduma, it is understood that former Bucs utility player Benson Mhlongo could be the man to head up the MDC side.
“I can tell you that Pirates will probably appoint a new coach ahead of the upcoming season as they want to change the entire structure of the MDC technical team,” revealed the source.
“They (Pirates) have tipped Benson Mhlongo to take over the role, but the restructuring will include other roles as well,” added the source.
