Pirates is Playing with 5 Center Backs: Junior Khanye

- Junior not Happy With Ndah

Former Chiefs star Junior Kanye predicted a win or a draw for Chippa against Pirates during halftime. He got his prediction right.

Junior is convinced that there is no difference between Pirates last season and this season. One might even say they still play the same way they did under Zinnbauer.

Sibisi, Ndah, and Maele are still trying to combine. At times they go for the same ball. Chippa nearly scored after Ndah was left for pace. Ofori made a good save.

Junior was not happy with Ndah. When he has a ball. Ndah is very good but he nearly cost the team when tracking back.

Monyane was supposed to do better. The ball that was saved by Ofori. He was the root of the problem. He ran across too quickly leaving a cap behind him.

-5 Center Backs

Junior is not convinced by Monare and Mosele. Their passes were not penetrative going forward. They failed to find Lorch and Pule. They were passing backward and sideways mostly.

Whenever they put a successful pass forward they "blast" the attackers instead of putting in a good decent pass.

They end up defending mostly instead of supplying the attackers.

Junior Kanye is convinced that there is no creativity in central midfielders. It is like playing with 5 centers back. He is adamant that there is no difference between Ndah, Maela, Mosele, Sibisi, and Monare. All these players are the same, is like you are playing with 5 centers backs.

Most chances were coming from the flanks for Pirates.

-The Coach Tactics Were Wrong

Chippa United was only defending one person at the back, there was no need to put a defender. Chips did not give Pirates any problems.

Pirates coach Jose Riveiro was supposed to put an attacking player and eliminate one central midfielder.

The was no game management. Lorch was overworking himself on the flank.
