Johannesburg - The case of showboating has been a much talked about headline for the past three weeks in the South African football.
Orlando Pirates coach Eric Tinkler has admitted that he has no problem with his players pleasing their supporters in a competitive match as long as it will bring positive results to the Buccaneers camp.
Pirates enjoyed their emphatic 4-1 triumph over Chippa United in an ABSA Premiership clash at the Orlando stadium on Tuesday courtesy of Ayanda Ngcaba, Kermit Erasmus and a brace from Mpho Makola respectively.
“I’m always happy for them to do that, that’s what I always say," said Tinkler
“As long as they are doing it in the right areas, at the right time and it must always bring something positive.
“That has always been my personal opinion throughout."
The Buccaneers faithful were then entertained by their players show boating in the closing stages of the game and Tinkler hinted that his players are permitted to do so but in certain areas only.
“It needs to lead to something positive, lead to an opportunity, lead to a through ball, lead to an accurate pass and towards keeping the possession of the ball.
“Otherwise I don’t have any problem with it.”
