To say Orlando Pirates Coach Roger de Sa must be fired really leaves me wondering, what games are the Pirates fans watching? We need assess things more accurately and consider the actual facts divorcing all emotions.
Emotions aside, our players chocked when it mattered most. You don't reach 3 major cup finals (MTN8, CAF Champions League and Telkom Knockout) in 3/4 months and suddenly you’re a bad coach, it can never be, never. Just look at all the finals and tell me honestly that we were not supposed to win all those games based on our play and chances we created!
Roger de Sa did his job, with the same players that are suddenly painted as bad etc, but again when it matters most, the same players who got us to these finals fail to do simple things in the final but they did them in pre-final games. Again all the players we have are damn good, and we can't say they horrible because they failed us when it mattered most.
Surely blame can never be squared with Roger de Sa entirely to a point where there's suggestions to fire him. In principle, that would be first degree murder on a coach who has done well. A coach well respect in Africa (18 months in his job at Orlando Pirates).
Hands off Roger de Sa. Once and Always.
