- Former Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates player Dumisa Ngobe issued a warning to both Ernst Middendorp and Rhulani Mokwena
- The two teams are braced to face each other twice in two weeks and Ngobe predicts that the losing coach will be out of a job
- Ngobe feels that two bad results will be enough for the fans to turn on their coach
Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates are set to face off in two huge Soweto derbies over the next two weeks.
The first encounter takes place this weekend in the Telkom Knockout, followed by a Premier Soccer League clash on November 9.
One man who fully understands the significance of the derby is Dumisa Ngobe.
Ngobe is one of the few who has played for both teams and knows exactly whats at stake.
KickOFF.com reported that the former midfielder feels that two poor results could prove costly for the relevant coach.
Ngobe pulled no punches as he said, "One coach will be shown the door here. These are the kind of fixtures that decide a coach's future. This is where supporters turn against a coach, for losing to Chiefs or to Pirates two games in a row."
Briefly.co.za understands that Ngobe struggled to make a prediction in terms of the results as he feels both teams will be up for it.
Orlando Pirates coach Rhulani Mokwena was under pressure while the Buccaneers were struggling for form, but picked up a morale-boosting victory against Highlands Park.
Conversely, Amakhosi mentor Ernst Middendorp is flying high as his chargers lead the PSL log.
However, the form guide often goes out the window in crunch clashes.
Ngobe added: "To tell you the truth, I think as much as Pirates is struggling now, it's going to be difficult for Kaizer Chiefs to beat Pirates."
