Is Local Not Lekker For Pirates?

Orlando Pirates have gone through a tough season. Despite reaching two cup finals, having a good second half of the campaign, and having a first-time head coach, the season has largely been viewed as a failure by the club's supporters. So now, as many call for his head, the big question is: Do Pirates need a local or foreign coach?

This point was raised in a Get Published article by stixzonenic, and the responses were arousing.

"We need local coaches." – macdonaldd

"Local is not lekker for Pirates." – ronicom

And then there is the question of who exactly it should be. There are many rumblings linking Gavin Hunt to the club, but the worry is, despite being a good coach, he may not fit the flair of Pirates. The Buccaneers are a unique team in that the supporters will not accept a good result if it comes at the price of ugly football.

"Khoza. Sign Van Gaal, he has no club." – luvline

"If not Gavin, why not Kosta Papic? He is attack-minded and his team will play soccer the way it should be played. Even if we lose, we lose with our heads held high, so why not?" – Tony

"Hunt and Pirates are like water and oil, and they will certainly never mix in my lifetime." – sikabopha

Many supporters have also called for the consideration of Chippa United coach Dan Malesela. The trick will be to find the balance of flair and results, which many think Dan has achieved with Chippa United this season. Many also feel he will get the best out of flair players such as Thabo Rakhale.
