Cape Town - Black Leopards coach Luc Eymael believes
Orlando Pirates' new coach Josef Zinnbauer may find it difficult to adjust
to life in a foreign league.
Zinnbauer was off to a winning start on Saturday as the
Buccaneers claimed a 3-1 victory over Lidoda Duvha but Eymael says most of the
credit should go to his assistant coaches Rhulani Mokwena and Fadlu Davids.
"I think that he has been helped by his assistant
coaches to win the first game. I'm just worried that he does not have PSL and
African experience," Eymael told Daily Sun.
"But he works at a big team and has all the support and
players that he needs. It's going to be difficult for him."
The Leopards boss went on to talk about previous Bucs boss
Mokwena, who was demoted from head coach back to assistant coach after a
difficult start to the season.
"I told Rhulani before the game that I was feeling
sorry for him. Despite our fights in the past when I was still at Free State
Stars, I still feel sorry for him. I can imagine what he is going
through," he said.
"I told him that he must soldier on and continue to
work hard. He is a coach, who has a promising future and still has a long way
to go. It’s just that I'm sad for Rhulani but it will be okay."
