'We went back to the Pirates system'

Orlando Pirates

Orlando Pirates coach Josef Zinnbauer reveals the improved showing in the second half was down to a change in system against AmaZulu.

The Buccaneers marched to their fourth successive league victory and prolonged their unbeaten run to eight matches after seeing off the struggling KwaZulu-Natal outfit.

“The support was fantastic today. We didn’t come good in the first half, It wasn’t easy because the opponents changed a little bit the tactic against the ball because normally they have the high-pressure now they were waiting for us,” Zinnbaeur told SuperSport TV.

“It wasn’t so easy because normally we have a lot of space. But we changed the system a little bit at halftime.

“We went back to the normal Pirates system. It was good then because we created three or four big chances. When you don’t make the goal it’s always difficult in football,” he continued.

After a goalless first half which had the Buccaneers somewhat on the ropes, the whole structure turned following the restart.

“We changed the system at halftime. The question I asked the guys, ‘Is this Pirates?’ The team came back and it was the normal football that we want, congratulations to my team,” Zinnbauer stated.
