Saddam: Pirates Supporters Must Stop Fighting

We are doing something new in Supporters Club, where we ask supporters of one club to give advice to another club. To start things off, we contacted Saddam Maake, a Kaizer Chiefs fan, and asked him for his opinion on Orlando Pirates.

SLSC: So what do you think Pirates should do with coach Eric Tinkler?

SM: They should keep him, but they should give him a technical director to advise him. Pirates have good players and coach, but I'm worried about the driver. It is like having a Porsche with a bad driver.

SLSC: Who is the best Orlando Pirates player?

SM: Qalinge, Makola, and that player number eight… Matlaba. They are great. If Manyisa was fit this season, I would say him. The goalkeeper Mhlongo needs experience.

SLSC: Where is Pirates' weak spot?

SM: The backline, they don't have a good one. They were good when they had Sangweni and Lekgwathi. But nowadays they don't have a good backline. And they need a goalkeeper who can organise.

SLSC: What is your message to the Orlando Pirates supporters?

SM: They must not support individual players but support the team. And, secondly, they must accept the results. Win, lose, or draw, they must accept it. Because every time Pirates lose, the fans fight. No one must get hurt in the name of the game, we ended this thing a long time ago. They must not fight with us, we are both from Soweto, we are brothers from another mother. When they lose the Carling Black Label, they must not fight.

What do you think of Saddam's advice to Pirates?
