Bucs’ Mbele: Our Technical Team Is Capable

Orlando Pirates’ recent results have brought the technical team under fire, however, the club maintains that the coaches, Head Coach Milutin Sredojević and assistant coaches, Rhulani Mokwena and Benson Mhlongo are capable.

Bucs Administrative Officer Floyd Mbele has informed Soccer Laduma that the Buccaneers' recent poor form is something that every team goes through and that the club’s technical team is more than qualified to steer the club back to winning ways. 

“We’ve not had the best start to the new season but with a relatively new technical team it's expected and we as management understand this,” explained the Bucs man.

“Pirates is a big team and we have been in situations like this before. It will take time before things come together. We are both patient and confident in the coach and his technical team that’s why they were appointed. 

 “We can’t panic every time results don’t go our way. People need to be patient and give the coach and his team time with the players,” concluded Mbele.

Earlier, reports surfaced that the Parktown-based club was linked with Argentinian goalkeeper coach Alex Heredia as a possible replacement for current Bucs goalkeeper trainer Ivica Vukusic.

However, Mbele was quick to rubbish the reports stating that club was happy with all its coaching departments.  

The Soweto giants' poor run has seen them fail to win their previous five league encounters where they have lost crucial encounters against Mamelodi Sundowns and Bidvest Wits. Pirates were also sent crashing out of the Telkom Knockout Cup after losing to unfancied Polokwane City via penalties.
