Cape Town - Eric
Tinkler is concerned over the detrimental effects
that Orlando Pirates's CAF Confederation Cup campaign might have on their 2015/16 PSL season.
Orlando Pirates were back in
training this morning after taking a week off following their impressive 4-1
victory over AS Kaloum last Saturday that saw them advance with a 6-1
Tinkler is clearly intent on
giving his players as much rest as possible so as not to hamper the squad’s
fitness levels going into next season.
“What becomes very important
is the recovery after games and between games – the type of training that they
do,” Tinkler told Sport24.
"It is very important
otherwise it’s going to affect us next season and that’s where the concern lies
currently. So we are looking to strengthen and bolster the team."
Oupa Manyisa, Thabo Matlaba,
Patrick Phungawayo and Thamsangqa Gabuza are in Cape Town as Bafana Bafana
prepare to play Angola in a friendly on Tuesday but the rest of the Bucs squad
resumed training today.
