Check out some of the comments below:
"You guys are such a bullchid of management. Just sell the team or change its name to something else"
"Look at wits, with all the resources spend, what did he achieve? 2 trophies in 7 years is not an achievement especially when you even brought Pienaar on the fold"
"How do U fire a coach who inherited a redundant squad and was never given an opportunity to sign the players he wants and build his own team? But on the other hand its our beloved chiefs we talking about here they don’t want someone who will challenge them."
"Interesting enough, people who caused us a transfer ban still have jobs. Even more interesting it wasn’t the first first time they used back door tactics to sign players."
Meanwhile, Briefly News previously reported that despite the backlash he has received from some of the club's fans, who are preparing a protest on 5 June, Orlando Pirates coach Josef Zinnbauer says there are some spectators who are enthusiastic about how things have been going for the team.
Fans have been vocal about their dissatisfaction with the German-born coach on social media for some time, urging the club's management to fire him. Some Pirates have called for Zinnbauer's dismissal after the Buccaneers were eliminated from the CAF Confederation Cup quarter-finals after losing 5-1 on aggregate against Raja Casablanca, according to a report by The Citizen.
According to Soccer Laduma, Kaizer Chiefs fans recently organised a march to Naturena to express their unhappiness with the club and hand over a statement of grievances and Pirates fans are now following in their rivals' footsteps.
“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."
