Zinnbauer Reacts To Prospect Of #JZOut March
After a selection of Orlando Pirates fans indicated they want to organise a #JZOut march, Orlando Pirates coach Josef Zinnbauer has commented on the rumours.
Some Buccaneers fans want to march to Orlando Stadium on 5 June in a motion of no confidence walk towards Zinnbauer, whom they want to be sacked.
The fans are not happy with the team’s performances this season after they were knocked out of the CAF Confederations Cup following their 4-0 thrashing by Raja Casablanca, who advance 5-1 on aggregate.
The German tactician, though, insisted that fans’ protests are a common thing in football these days but he prefers to look at the bright side of this campaign.
“It’s not in Africa only. It’s the whole world. You look at England, you look at Germany, you look at the whole world,” he told media at the Carling Cup launch on Wednesday.
“You lost games, then the supporters are upset. We win the next few games and we get a good place (on the Premiership standings).
“You have some supporters who are upset after games we lost, which is totally normal. I can understand. But you have on the other side supporters who give you positives.
“Don’t forget we won a title this season. We were in the quarterfinals (of the CAF Confederation Cup). Yes, you can find all the negative points, but we see the other side.”
Pirates currently sit in fourth place on the DStv Premiership log, three points behind third-placed Golden Arrows, who have played two games more, and seven points behind AmaZulu in second, having one game in hand over Benni McCarthy’s side whom they will face on Thursday.
