Pirates have gone three games without scoring a goal and suffered their second successive defeat when Swallows beat them 3-0 in a League clash on Saturday. Before that SuperSport United also beat them by the same score to knock them out of the MTN8 Cup.
'Njenje' has since apologised to the club's fans for the poor results and assures them the situation will soon improve.
"I want to apologise to Pirates fans for the recent poor results. No-one goes into the matches to lose, but unfortunately luck has not been on our side in terms of winning games," says Palacios.
"I always tell the players to go on the field to fight for three things: they must fight for themselves, their families and the club supporters.
"We are determined to pull ourselves together and with the help of our supporters we will bounce back."
Palacios also pleaded for a correction to the statement printed in newspapers where he is alleged to have said "It's up to the chairman to fire him".
"I have been with this club for 17 years and I always try to give of my best for any duties given to me by the chairman. I was misquoted by saying that it’s up to chairman to relieve me of my duties as head coach at Pirates.
"I am ready to continue with my job at Pirates until a decision by the club management is made," he adds.
