ICYMI: Gordon Igesund is the man for Orlando Pirates?

For a while now two of South Africa's top teams in Orlando Pirates & Kaizer Chiefs have had a major issue of coaching instability and inconsistency

That in turn has cost both teams at the highest of levels in a sense of winning trophies and is one of the reasons why the Soweto Giants have fallen behind Mamelodi Sundowns over the past six seasons

Because from a statistical point of view Orlando Pirates & Kaizer Chiefs have both had a combined and quite staggering nine different coaches in the space of five seasons and six years or so which is just unbelievable

As for Orlando Pirates unlike Kaizer Chiefs they have most recently lost a first team head coach in the form of Josef Zinnbauer who resigned before the season even started which summarizes the state the club have been in over the past few years

To perhaps fill the void left behind by Josef Zinnbauer at Orlando Pirates former Mamelodi Sundowns top boss Gordon Igesund has expressed his interest in potentially becoming the club's new top boss according to & courtesy of reports from

"But I will definitely consider them. Pirates are a big institution in South African football without a doubt,"

"I had good times when I was there. I won the championship with them. The first year with them I won the BP Top Eight Cup, I reached the Rothmans Cup final,"

Gordon Igesund to his massive credit is part of an elite list in South African Football of being one of the few coaches who've the league title on four occasions

That exclusive list now includes the now great Pitso Mosimane, Gavin Hunt, and Gordon Igesund himself

As well as having the experience of winning trophies Gordon Igesund also wins trophies playing an expansive style of football that is extremely attractive even to fellow rival fans
