Cape Town - Orlando Pirates coach Eric Tinkler believes crowd pleasing ball-trickery is not an issue, as long as the showboating does not affect the team negatively.
Pirates felt the ire of CS Sfaxien players when they started a skills exhibition during their match at the Orlando Stadium which the opposition viewed as disrespectful.
The Buccaneers' ball-wizards, Sifiso Myeni and Thabo Rakhale, thrilled the fans with their moves in their 2-0 CAF Confederation Cup win over Sfaxien.
The win put Pirates in pole position for a spot in the semi-final of the continental championship.
"I'm not going to make such a big deal out of it. I've always stated this before, as long as it is in the right areas and has positive reasons that will benefit the team," Tinkler told KickOff.
"Sfaxien obviously didn't like it. It is Kasi flavour, they need to get used to that. But I've stated this before, as long as it is in the right areas, that's what is important.
"It was important for us to collect three points to move to nine. That was the objective to get to nine points as quick as possible because I always felt that those points should be enough to get to the semis."
