Former Orlando Pirates head coach found a new club?

The German coach left the Buccaneers at the start of the last campaign for, as he claimed, personal reasons.

He is the only coach to have led the Pirates to a significant prize in the previous six years.

The MTN8 trophy was won by the German coach during his second campaign with the Buccaneers.

The coach has finally found a new club after going almost a full year without one.The 52-year-old Zinnbauer has accepted a new position as the head coach of FC Lokomotiv Moscow, a major Russian club.

After his son was injured in an accident that put him in a coma, the coach quit Pirates because he wanted to be nearer to his family.

The coach declared that he was prepared to return to the dugout because his kid is healing well and that he has landed a job in Russia.

"We are delighted to have Josef Zinnbauer join our group. As anticipated, Lokomotiv is adding a qualified professional to its coaching team "according to a statement from Lokomotiv Moscow.
