The Iron Duke Will Surprise Us All

We, as supporters, spend much of our breathing life trying to predict the footballing future. We try to speculate about results, transfers and coaches. One man who is purely unpredictable is Irvin Khoza. Which makes predicting the next Orlando Pirates coach a difficult task for us football supporters.

One supporter has pointed out that it is a fruitless exercise to try and guess the next coach. Very few within the Ghost Ship even saw the appointment of Muhsin Ertugral coming.

 “It's pointless to speculate on who The Duke will hire as the Pirates coach, as Mark Gleeson once said. Over the years he has been surprised even the so-called experts in the game. Gleeson said, "what I'm sure of its that we will be all surprised on the press conference to announce the coach." And were we all not surprised when Muhsin was announced the Bucs coach?” – gudinuf

Of the names that have been put forward and linked to the club through speculation, there have been none that are particularly well-established brands. One such example has been Jose Carlos Fernandes Vidigal.

Many supporters have been disheartened by the lack of “star-status” attached to his name. However, one other supporter has pointed out something rather interesting about “established names” in South African football.

“No one knew either Bondarenko or Papic before they came to SA to coach Pirates but they both ended up as two of the most popular coaches to Pirates supporters so I don't think you need to be well known to be a good coach. Sundowns can attest to that because they, in the past, hired some of most famous coaches in the continent but they all failed to deliver.” – Neymar_10

Do Pirates need a well-known coach?
