Tinkler Back To Haunt Kaizer Chiefs Next Season

Our relentless Siya Crew has delivered the goods once again. The news has broken that Eric Tinkler will be the coach of the new Aces (the name of the club still hasn't been announced, so we need to be inventive). In a swap deal that has seen Muhsin Ertugral move over to Pirates and Tinkler to Aces, it's time to see what the supporters think of all this…

Some have taken the opportunity to see the humour in the situation. This "sim swap" deal does seem like a well-scripted movie as we can imagine Muhsin and Eric tagging each other as they trade places.

"Congrats, now take Masuku, Motupa and Gabuza with you… You are even welcome to bid for Mhlongo." – BBm66

Most supporters have used the opportunity to congratulate Tinkler and state their support for the former Bafana Bafana star, irrespective of his poor season with Pirates.

"Congratulations Tinkler, maybe you will do well at Cape Town Aces with the experience you got from Bucs. It means a lot to you and your new home in the Cape." – mbixane

What Tinkler will most fondly be remembered for during his time with Pirates is his consistent triumph over Chiefs this past season. Many supporters have forecasted that, at his new club, he will again be a thorn in Chiefs' side.

"All the best coach, keep beating Kaizer Chiefs left, right and center." – amxo manana

"You're the only coach that beats KC." – mnisjj

"Still no inner peace at the zoo because Tinkler knows very well how to slay a zebra." – Buccaneer 4 lyf

Do you think Tinkler will be successful at a smaller club? What is your message for Eric?
