Sarr: Fans Must Be Patient With Tinkler

Orlando Pirates midfielder, Issa Sarr, has pleaded with the Bucs faithful to be patient with the coach and the players as they look to salvage their season.

The Buccaneers sit in 11th position on the log going into this weekend’s Soweto Derby against Kaizer Chief, having won just four of their 14 league games so far this season.

Eric Tinkler and his players are coming under increasing pressure as they look to dig themselves out of the hole they have created and climb their way back up the table, and Sarr has appealed to fans to give them time.

“It’s not good to find ourselves in the bottom half of the table at this time of the season. I know that our supporters are frustrated but I’m pleading with them to be patient,” Sarr told Bucs official website.

“They must be patient with the coach and the players because we are all working together to get the team out of this difficult situation and we are doing our best.

“We all know that Pirates is a big team and the fans expect the results every time we play, so we’ll continue fighting and we are going to make sure that we win the derby for them.  

“They must just keep on supporting us because in times like this we really need them to rally behind us.”
