Mara why Orlando Pirates Management?

Written By Themba Khumalo on Wednesday, October 2, 2013 | Wednesday, October 02, 2013

Every time when Orlando Pirates succumbed to accomplish certain accolade, we are always subjected to countless stories of conspiracies to sabotage either a head coach and his technical team or some certain players from certain management official(s).

I am flabbergasted to read an emotional, disheartening and tear-jerking story in the Daily Sun from the team loyal captain and the longest serving member in the team Lucky Lekgwathi. He claimed that “sinister forces” are behind his exclusion from the Orlando Pirates line-up for the MTN8 Final – but says he does not blame Orlando Pirates coach Roger de Sa. It means the issue of team selection is now beyond the coach Roger de Sa…. very interesting!

It is clear that there is an unequivocal management interference with the team selection which will slowly but surely take the team down during this crunch time. Recently, media was given starting line-up of Orlando Pirates with Lehlohonolo “Vieira’ Masalesa in the starting eleventh in the MTN8 Final, but when the team came out of the tunnel, Vieira was replaced by Andile Jali and even today, many don’t know the rationale behind Masalesa last minute replacement whilst those claiming to be close to the name dropped certain team management official interfering with the team selection.

For the sake of unity in the team and also to pursue the dream of attaining the second star, roles and responsibilities between technical team and management should be clearly re-articulated and re-defined to avoid further encroachment of management into the technical team tactical territory.

Technical team must execute their tactical mandate without any so called “sinister” forces manipulating their decision making.

The team has come too far not to give-up at the crunch time of CAF Champions League Semi-Final, but where there is smoke there is fire.

Once and always!
