Mandla Ncikazi makes passionate plea as furious Orlando Pirates fans demand permanent coach

Orlando Pirates fans are getting frustrated by the clubs continued delay in hiring a fixed head coach. 

One of the Orlando Pirates co coaches, Mandla Ncikazi, has pleaded for patience as he revealed his ambitions with his co coach Fadlu Davids, in a bid to make the club's fans understand their plans. 

Ncikazi and Davids took over coaching duties after abruptly sacking Josef Zinnbauer in August, following the Bucs' exit from the MTN8 quarter-final by Swallows FC.

Since they took over the job, it is unclear whether they will continue with it for a long time or still hold on. 

Even the Pirates' bosses are not clear on whether the coaches will stay permanently. After a 1-1 draw with Cape Town City in the DStv Premiership on Saturday, Ncikazi called on Pirates fans to understand their goals for the club as they have been given the job. 

"We are trying to build a Pirates that will be defeated but the fans will return home satisfied. Any coach hired by Pirates must bring the team back to where it should be. 

"At the moment I don't think the way we play is in line with our name," said Ncikazi.
