It's a new dawn at Orlando Pirates and coach Josef Zinnbauer is leading the charge.
Following a dismal run of results, the Buccaneers parted ways with former coach Rhulani Mokwena and entrusted the German tactician.
Photos of a Pirates training session recently emerged via social media and it seems fans are loving the sight of Zinnbauer.
The German was seen putting the players through their paces and the social media post went viral.
Pirates shared the pics via Facebook and Briefly.co.za gauged the public reaction.
While many have decided to wholeheartedly throw their weight behind the German, others felt that Mokwena got a raw deal.
MD MD Zwide called on others to support the new coach:
"Guys let's support our new coach, this is our team, all the best coach, now we have the German machine."
Mvume Stofile sympathised with Mokwena:
"You fail to support poor Rhulani, you South Africans are sell outs."
Petrus Mamafa responded emphatically:
"Na relax Mvume Stofile .. Pirates is not bafana bafana ... we want results . No time for practicals baba .. advise him to send CV's to bafana bafana . Then we will support him doing practicals there."
