Coaching duo Mandla Ncikazi and Fadlu Davids have been at the helm on an interim basis since the departure of German coach Josef Zinnbauer.

A former Orlando Pirates star has called for a coaching change at the Buccaneers following their disappointing draw at Maritzburg United.

Pirates are currently 6th on the DStv Premiership standings with a mere 10 points from their opening 7 league games played so far.

"There's nothing happening in terms of the progress and they have to look for a new coach," Sebola tells Kickoff.com.

"They have to look for a new combination because the combinations that Ncikazi is using is not working for them.

"Even the chances they are creating are not enough. They are not that convincing and Maritzburg dominated them. You could see there's no longer any combinations ku Bhakaniya.

"The only thing is to change the coach. Also, add two or three quality players and not the ones that they are using now.

"Because they are not the material that I was looking for when they came to work for Pirates. There is nothing that I've seen so far that has convinced me."

Sebola also shared his dissatisfaction at the departure of the German coach.

"Zinnbauer left, and Zinnbauer was doing a good job. He won them trophies I don't know why he left," Sebola added.

"So now I'm confused. I don't know which coach I could recommend but I think Dan Malesela would do a better job because he is not the same as Ncikazi, where Dan can play football.

“Ncikazi was good for Golden Arrows but not for Pirates because I don't see anything that is convincing me.

"Even the supporters are worried saying it looks like Pirates are going to be the Kaizer Chiefs of last season. Where they will be struggling to make the Top Eight, so it's disappointing.

"But I think Dan Malesela can do a way better job at Pirates."
