Pirates and Chiefs in a battle to sign an experienced head coach

The search for a new head coach for the Orlando Pirates is underway, and things are heating up. Finding a suitable coach in the DStv Premiership and even abroad is difficult. Perhaps this is one of the factors affecting the Pirates, since they do not want to rush things. Furthermore, if the parties involved refuse to meet halfway, the negotiations can take a lengthy period. Josef Zinnbauer, the head coach of the Pittsburgh Pirates, resigned from his position roughly two months ago. Zinnbauer's previous assistant coaches Fadlu Davids and Mandla Ncikazi have been named as interim co-coaches in the absence of Zinnbauer.

The Buccaneers have expressed interest in former Al Ahly assistant coach Cavin Johnson as a result of this. However, the negotiations took a turn when it was revealed that the Kaizer Chiefs were attempting to agitate their neighbors in order to get Johnson. After all, Chiefs head coach Stuart Baxter's second spell at Naturena was a disaster. He appears to be skating on thin ice, from the looks of things. Positive results in the DStv Premiership are the only thing that can save Baxter. According to Soccer Laduma, the Phefeni Glamour Boys may miss out on Johnson since he is interested in joining Mayfair.
