We’re still a work in progress – Zinnbauer
“I think the new signings and the old players have found a good combination, which helped us win the title. So, I think it’s good that we got the new players.” Orlando Pirates head coach Josef Zinnbauer said as quoted by Kick-Off.
“You saw the bench was full of top players, and now we have to continue to find the right direction in the system that we want, the game model we want and definitely in the offence. We’re still working on this, it’s not finished. We have a lot of work still to do, and we will get there, but we are happy about this.”
