Orlando Pirates have confirmed that Ryan Jacobs has joined the club as a technical analyst, the Siya crew can reveal.
Jacobs previously worked for Amisco, a leading provider of football data and analysis, and will have picked up skills that are likely to help him slot in quickly at the Sea Robbers.
The Siya crew confirmed the news with Pirates coach Roger de Sa, who will be hoping that his new recruit will add value to the team.
Pirates are currently preparing for their crunch CAF Champions League clash with Al Ahly on Sunday, as they look to book a spot in the semi-finals of the continental competition.
The Sea Robbers lost their last outing away to AC Leopards and will now need a result against their Egyptian opponents, while hoping that Zamalek do them a favour against Leopards.
