The legendary former Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns coach Gordon Igesund believes Orlando Pirates will eventually overcome their current scoring difficulties and he warns once this happens the team might become an unstoppable force.
Igesund said Pirates were currently in a rebuilding phase and the coaching staff were still experimenting with various combinations to figure out which work together best. He pointed out that the team created loads of scoring opportunities but failed to take advantage of them.
Igesund said once the team clicks as a unit and has learned how to finish they will start winning and place rival teams under enormous pressure.
Briefly.co.za gathered that Igesund admitted that it was high time the legendary side started living up to its potential and started winning matches. Igesund pointed out that other teams had started the season well and would continue to put pressure on struggling teams.
Citizen.co.za reported that Orlando Pirates have had a stuttering start to the 2018/19 campaign. The Soweto giants have managed two wins, two losses and a draw in the PSL and were knocked out of the MTN8 competition early.
Pirates were widely expected to challenges for PSL honours this season after an encouraging rebuilding phase last year which saw them finish second to Mamelodi Sundowns.
The club made some high-profile signings and combined with an encouraging pre-season training camp raised the expectation of many that the side would return to winning silverware and put a lean three-year spell behind it.
