Cape Town - Orlando Pirates coach Eric Tinkler says that he wants build a competitive squad ahead of the new PSL campaign.
According to the club's official website, Tinkler along with his technical staff had to trim the Buccaneers squad of over 60 players ahead of their pre-season camp in Nelspruit.
“The point is to cut down the number of players to a more manageable squad of players for the new season and with the friendly matches we had against Bidvest Wits and Bloemfontein Celtic; we were able to achieve our objective,” said Tinkler.
“It was quite important for us to have a manageable squad in order to be able to give everyone a certain amount of attention and time, which is key if we want to have a successful season especially with new players coming into the squad.
“We are happy with the composition of the squad so far. We will look to build a competitive squad from the group of players that we have.”
