Have Pirates turned the corner?

In the same game, the German mentor later called in defender Alfred Ndengane for striker Mhango with two minutes remaining to consolidate their slender lead.

It is not surprising that Pirates are showing a significant turnaround since the arrival of the 49-year-old at the club in December.

Zinnbauer seems to have found a formula to shut the door and not allow opposition teams to breach Pirates’ defence easily.

Zinnbauer still has the same players, and has just tweaked the squad a bit. But what is evident is the unity within the team. Judging by how the players celebrate and embrace each other when they score goals, they seem happy. Even after conceding, they don’t drop their heads.

He might not be a regular, but the former Bloemfontein Celtic defender is the first to jump up from the bench every time a goal is scored.

Nobody could explain why the likes of Luvuyo Memela and Abel Mabaso were not playing under Mokwena.

Vincent Pule is now playing more as left winger than a central midfielder, which has allowed Ben Motshwari and Fortune Makaringe to play more in the centre. This gives the side more balance in the middle of the park.

I agree. It was too early for him at this level not because of age in my opinion. The experience he attained was not sufficient enough to get him there.
