Ncikazi raffles feathers at Orlando Pirates after he said this

Orlando Pirates co coach Mandla Ncikazi is on a mission to improve the Buccaneers run in the DStv Premier Soccer League. 

But he has demanded consistency from his players. 

Ncikazi raffled feathers in his post match press conference after he suggested that those who did not start the weekend match against Chippa United would struggle to break into the starting eleven. 

Orlando Pirates had to come from behind to scoop a well deserved 3-1 win over their nemesis. 

“It’s important to have a consistent 11. Teams that win championships have a consistent 11. If it’s possible’and there are no injuries, we d love to keep the same team going forward,” said Ncikazi.

Ncikazi went on to say that a consistent team was more capable of challenging for honours. 

“We want to be consistent but sometimes injuries force us into situations that we don’t want to be in. Pirates have been very unlucky with injuries lately.”

This suggests that Pirates will no longer be employing a rotational approach.  

Are you happy with Pirates starting eleven?
