Cape Town - Ex-Orlando Pirates midfielder Thabo Mngomeni expressed his disappointment with the club's performance this season, saying they lacked consistency.

The Sea Robbers' only hope for a trophy this season is in the CAF Confederation Cup as their stalemate against Ajax Cape Town pushed them down one place to fourth place as Bidvest Wits secured a 1-0 victory over Platinum Stars.

The club lost the MTN8 final to Kaizer Chiefs and were knocked out of both the Nedbank Cup and Telkom Knockout by SuperSport United.

Mngomeni is disappointed with their performance in domestic competitions, despite their good run on the continent.

"I think it was a bad year for us, just like last year," the former Bafana Bafana star told KickOff.

"But I think what is killing Pirates mostly is the inconsistency of the players and their inconsistency in their way of playing.

"That is why they are not getting results. If the players can be more consistent, not playing a weak team or a strong team, they can go far."

Eric Tinkler was put in charge of the club on a temporary basis after the Christmas break and there is talk of him being given the job permanently.

Mngomeni would not mind seeing Tinkler getting the job, saying that it should definitely be a South African who is put in charge.
