'Bucs technical team situation a cause for concern'


Former midfielder Joseph Kamwendo says Orlando Pirates' poor performances in the DStv Premiership is a cause of concern among the Buccaneers faithful.

Pirates crashed out of the Nedbank Cup after suffering a surprise defeat to Marumo Gallants at the Peter Mokaba Stadium thanks to a dramatic penalty shootout.

This follows a disheartening Soweto derby defeat by 2-1 to Kaizer Chiefs in a league encounter as the Buccaneers suffered consecutive defeats.

"When a team like Orlando Pirates is not winning and not playing attractive football then there is a problem with the technical team," Kamwendo tells KickOff.

"Pirates are renowned as a team who lift trophies. It's been a while since winning a major trophy so it's a big concern.

"I believe the team needs to do something to be competitive so we are all worried because we all love the team and as they always say 'once and always'.

"I am not in a great position to say whether the technical team should be fired on not. I think at the beginning of the season, the management set out objectives for them to achieve so it's up to the management to decide."

Orlando Pirates are set to switch their focus back to CAF Confederations Cup when they host Royal Leopards of eSwatini at the Orlando Stadium on Sunday.
