This is my unequivocal assessment report about Orlando Pirates past and the present coach state of minds:
1. Kostadin Papic - Mastermind
He was the mastermind of free flowing football that won the heart of many fans with his offensive style of football.
2. Rudi Krol - Intelligent mind
He build solid foundation for championship team over the two years period and in his final year, he won the treble championship. He was a disciplinary coach who played players based on the performance than reputation
3. Julio Leal - Conscious Mind
He was a good coach but players take advantage of his humbleness and down to earth personality by over controlling him like a ball boy. He lost respect and the dressing room battle to players.
Poor Julio Leal could not see the way forward” and offered the chairman (Irvin Khoza) “to do what is right for the club”. He was fired
4. Augusto Palacious - Great Mind
He was la father figure to his players. He won a league after good foundation laid by Julio Leal. His problem was favouritism towards certain special players who never lived up to the fans expectation. Prior to his released due to health problem, he was no longer in good books of the fans.
5. Roger De Sa - Never mind
The current coach is collecting maximum points playing deep ultra defensive football which is anti-Orlando Pirates style of play. He has careless and "I don't care" approach as long as the maximum points are collected either playing good or bad football. He is developing an attitude towards disrespecting the opponent by playing fringe players already passed the sell by date. To RDS, win is win and so what?
