Orlando Pirates are no longer interested in appointing Calvin Johnson as new first team head coach?

Since Josef Zinnbauer randomly decided to leave Orlando Pirates there have been quite a number of candidates that have been linked with the Orlando Pirates top job as a consequence of that

There has been mentions of Dan Malesela who's recently himself been appointed at Marumo Gallants, Gavin Hunt who is currently at Chippa United, Herve Renard who is currently coaching Saudi Arabia and Calvin Johnson who doesn't have a club at the moment

But throughout all those names mentioned Orlando Pirates decided to give and entrust the duties of first team responsibilities to both assistant coaches Faldu Davids and Mandla Ncikazi

And both of them are not doing too badly for the Bucs while there has been widespread confusion over why exactly haven't Orlando Pirates appointed a new head coach

While that speculation has gone on Orlando Pirates have been going about the business on the pitch while a few players have been landing themselves in hot water namely Gabadinho Mhango and Ben Motshwari

And the name that has refused to go away the most out of all the coaches who have been linked with a move to Orlando Pirates has been that of Calvin Johnson who is currently enjoying his time away from the game after a successful spell as assistant coach at Al Ahly

There has been reports after reports and speculation after speculation that Calvin Johnson could be the man to take Orlando Pirates forward and take over from the departed Josef Zinnbauer

And he himself through a flurry of interviews in the media has revealed he has not been approached by Orlando Pirates also as well not revealing whether he would or would not be interested in the job or not

But now it is being suggested that Orlando Pirates would not be interested in appointing Calvin Johnson as the new head coach of the club then again...

These kind of situations always take place on a contingency level very very secretly when nobody really knows what is happening but something is happening behind the scenes

And time will tell whether Orlando Pirates are really not interested in appointing Calvin Johnson as football is very unpredictable and with these kind of situations nobody really knows what is going to happen
