Tinkler believes that he has started something meaningful
this term and would be delighted if he could be given an opportunity to finish
off what he has started during the current campaign.
However, he does acknowledge that the ball is ultimately in
chairman Irvin Khoza's court.
“I'm happy with my job at Pirates,” Tinkler told Isolezwe.
“Yes, I would have liked to win the Nedbank Cup for the
club, but it's no longer going to happen,” added Tinkler.
“Coaching Pirates comes with a lot of pressure, but if I can
still sleep and wake up, then it means I'm doing well. I have only lost twice
in 15 games,” added Tinkler.
“The chairman (Dr Irvin Khoza) will decide my future.
have to continue doing well for the team because that will be very crucial in
deciding my fate at the end of the season.
"I've said before that I would like
to coach Pirates on a permanent basis, but all that will depend on the
chairman,” he added.
