- Orlando Pirates coach Josef Zinnbauer hasn't been happy about the Christmas break
- The German mentor would love to maintain the momentum achieved following their previous victory
- The Buccaneers take on Bloemfontein Celtic on Saturday
Orlando Pirates coach Josef Zinnbauer is chomping at the bit and can't wait for his team to be back in action.
The German tactician recently touched on why he felt the Christmas break could be disadvantageous.
Following the sacking of interim coach Rhulani Mokwena, Zinnbauer got his tenure off to a winning start with a 3-1 victory over Black Leopards.
Zinnbauer said, “For me, the break is not good. I’m ready to work again with the squad and team, and it’s not so good for me.”
Daily Sun reported that Zinnbauer is desperate to maintain that momentum and has full confidence based on what he's seen thus far.
Briefly.co.za gathered that the victory over Leopards couldn't have come at a batter time, as it was only the fifth time Pirates won in their last 14 attempts.
Zinnbauer will soon have his wish as the Bucs prepare to battle Bloemfontein Celtic on Saturday.
It's almost unfathomable that the Soweto giants have never achieved back-to-back victories this season.
Despite their mediocre form, Pirates still find themselves in fifth position on the Absa Premiership log.
An interesting development is that victory for Celtic will elevate them to the same number of points (20) as the Buccaneers.
