Orlando Pirates appoint new coach, Is this a right appointment?

The Soweto giants Orlando Pirates have appointed a new coach day, this comes after the coach who was in charge after Josef Zimbauor was fired last season.

The interim coach, Mandla Ncilikazi who has been under pressure for all the last season has been finally let go by the sea robbers.

Ncilikazi had an almost perfect season this past season, but the loss to the Moroccan side in the Caf Confederation Cup final and narrowly missing out of all CAF competitions has costed him his job.

The man who will replace him has been finally announced, and he is none other than Jose Riveiro, the man from Spain was announced by the club on their twitter page earlier today.

Many high profile managers were linked to the job, including the likes of their former player Benni McCarthy who has done really well for himself since becoming a manager even winning coach of the season when he was in charge of the Amazulu side.

Do you think the appointment made by the Soweto giants is the right one? Ignoring the likes of Benni and Gavin Hunt behind and fish overseas for a foreign coach?
