Cape Town - Orlando
Pirates defender Ntsikelelo Nyauza believes former coach Vladimir Vermezovic
failed at the club as his tactics were too complex for the players to
'VV' resigned in the middle of last season after a poor string
of results, which to a large extent were also affected by the death of captain
Vermezovic's replacement, Eric Tinkler, has done a better job of
winning the hearts of the Buccaneers fans, and has a clearer understanding with
the squad, according to Nyauza.
"The thing with ‘VV' is that we couldn't perfect his
tactics," Nyauza told Soccer
"His tactics were right, but we couldn't perfect them
as he wanted them to be. Sometimes he would come with a strategy, but it ended
up as a waste because, as the players, we didn't understand. We then took time
to gel with that strategy.
"Otherwise he's a very good coach. His coaching skills
are excellent. It's just that sometimes players take time to adapt to a certain
style of play."
