Tinkler vs De Sa... The Rivalry Runs Deep

It appears as if South Africa is in for one of its most exciting seasons yet. There are many new coaches and new players with different teams, there are even new teams altogether. Among them is Cape Town City, who, like it or not, seem set to become rivals of Ajax Cape Town, and both former Orlando Pirates coaches will be looking to keep their bosses happy.

Supporters Club caught up with a man who knows the two coaches well as he was a fan through both eras; Orlando Pirates supporter Gio de Waal gave us some insight.

"This is going to be a competition! You can feel the drama. John Comitis was pushed out by Ajax, and now the teams will face each other. They also share a stadium, which is exciting; I see this being a big derby. And to top it all off, they (Eric Tinkler and Roger De Sa) both used to coach my team, Pirates!"

"So I know both of them well. If I had to choose, I think Tinkler was the better Pirates coach, and based on that showing I will back the new Cape Town City to win the first derby. From what I saw at Pirates, De Sa was a better tactician but Tinkler was better at inspiring players. They worked together at Wits, they worked together at Pirates, and now they oppose each other in the same city!" he concluded.

Do you agree with this supporter? If you are a Pirates fan, which coach did you prefer between Tinkler and De Sa?
