And when Mandla Ncikazi and Fadlu were both tasked with taking over from Josef Zinnbauer who resigned from the club before the start of the DSTV Premiership season there quite a few doubters and skeptics over whether they could manage
Although both coaches have relative experience of coaching at the highest level here in South African Football none of them have the experience of coaching one of the top clubs of the DSTV Premiership
And that is of course despite the fact that Mandla Ncikazi as head coach of Golden Arrows last season in the DSTV Premiership managed to guide the club to one of It's highest ever finishes as they finished in 4th place on the final standings
But doing that at Golden Arrows and doing it at Orlando Pirates are both two completely different things as the Soweto Giants are very much a bigger club than the KwaZulu-Natal based side in more ways than one
Although so far both Mandla Ncikazi and Fadlu Davids are doing quite a decent job at Orlando Pirates as it is very much clear that they have the correct mindset to handle and cope with the expectations and pressure of coaching the Bucs
Although yesterday in the DSTV Premiership Orlando Pirates did not quite get a good result against Amazulu as they were held to a frustrating draw in a game where they were expected to grab all three points
During the frustrating encounter Orlando Pirates star Thembinkosi Lorch missed a big chance to score a goal for his team to which is teammate Ben Motshwari has revealed he should have done more to get the job done according to & courtesy of reports from Goal.com
"A point away is a good point, the overall performance was good from the boys,"
"I think we were unlucky, we created so many chances. Even the last chance Thembinkosi Lorch had, I think it should have been a goal despite that, I think we fought hard,"
