Pirates Appoint Former Tottenham Coach

Orlando Pirates Have Appointed A Former Tottenham Hotspur Coach

By Soccer Laduma - Apr 04, 2018 12:06 PM
Orlando Pirates have added a new technical member to their team, bringing in a former Tottenham Hotspur coach as their first team analyst.
 
 
The Buccaneers had been on the lookout for a new analyst following Rayaan Jacobs’ departure to join Benni McCarthy at Cape Town City, and have wasted no time in bringing Englishman, Michael Loftman on board.
 
Loftman, who is 27-years-old, is a highly-qualified coach having already acquired his UEFA A Coaching Licence and has spent time with both Spurs as a development coach, and fellow English Premier League side, Watford, as a sports scientist, during his young career.
 
 
A qualified sports scientist, Loftman joins the Buccaneers to work alongside the likes of Milutin Sredojevic and Rulani Mokwena, with the club looking to try and return to winning ways after a drought that has now lasted several years. 
 
 
Loftman is no stranger to Africa, after he had a short spell as the head coach of Lusaka Dynamos in Zambia, and will be eager to try and help ‘Micho’ in Pirates’ quest to return to their former glory.
 
According to Siya sources, the former Dagenham & Redbridge academy coach has already started his work with the Buccaneers.

How many have come and gone the Henry Michel, Histro Stoichkov , Johan Neeskens just to name a few from my side. What have they bought to our league? what has the recently departed Kjell Jonevret leave behind and why was he sacked after 6 months in charge?..@jujuleBhakaJUJU
