Calvin Johnson is waiting for Orlando Pirates to knock on the door for his services?

The january transfer market is fast approaching and still Orlando Pirates have not confirmed the official appointment of a new head coach after Josef Zinnbauer left the club in january

And in football it is extremely dangerous to sign new players without there not being an official head coach at the club in charge who is a permanent one as well

Because at this very moment Orlando Pirates are currently under the leadership of Fadlu Davids and Mandla Ncikazi who were both former assistants to Josef Zinnbauer and are seemingly in charge of the club on a interim basis

But as well Orlando Pirates have not done too badly under both Mandla Ncikazi and Faldu Davids since they both took charge of the first team after the departure of Josef Zinnbauer earlier in the season

They to their credit steadied the Orlando Pirates ship decenty as the Bucs always grab a few good results then and there particularly in the DSTV Premiership this season

But of course a club like Orlando Pirates cannot afford to grab a few results then and there they have to get results all the time as that is standard of the club well at least historically it is

And in terms of who will be the next Orlando Pirates coach a lot of names have been thrown into the hat particularly Herve Renard, Gavin Hunt, Calvin Johnson

But the name of Calvin Johnson has been the most consistent one being mentioned in the media as the closest candidate to replacing Josef Zinnbauer at Orlando Pirates since he left

And to this point Calvin Johnson has revealed he has still not received any offers from Orlando Pirates in relation to him being appointment as the Bucs new and next top boss

"Yes, that's what i am waiting for - the right opportunity to see where I can use my expertise that I have got over the past 30 years and not only at Al Ahly, and try to get back to another level,"
