The deal to take Calvin Johnson to Orlando Pirates is now off as he has a new interesting offer?

The year is now almost two months away from ending from the time former Orlando Pirates top boss Josef Zinnbauer left his post as the clubs top boss

That particular incident happened in August before the start of the DSTV Premiership season as out of nowhere it was announced that Josef Zinnbauer had resigned as the Orlando Pirates first team head coach

And since then first team duties have been left in the hands of both Mandla Ncikazi as well as Fadlu Davids who are doing all they can to steady the ship and getting results along the way

And so far although they have not done particularly well they also haven't done that bad either as they are not so far off the pace in relation to the title race

But also in the long term Orlando Pirates cannot afford to go that long without a first team head coach as a lot of candidates have been linked with the club's first team head coach post

The most prominent name has been former Al Ahly assistant coach Calvin Johnson who has been heavily linked with a move to Orlando Pirates since he left the CAF Champions League winners

And time and time again when Calvin Johnson was quizzed over the possibility of taking over at Orlando Pirates he did not particularly deny the links nor did he reveal that there is some truth in them

As it stands though it is looking increasingly unlikely that Calvin Johnson will no longer be moving to Orlando Pirates as if sources close to the situation are true and accurate he might now be on the move to Marumo Gallants

"I know the club said there was no crisis when they fired the coach but they are now in a desperate situation,"

"They have been eyeing Johnson for a while anyway but the talks are dragging and I think he has more negotiating power and could make demands that may not be met,"
