Cape Town - Orlando Pirates chairperson Irvin Khoza believes that Kaizer Chiefs' decision to release a host of players prior to the 2016/17 campaign is not a relevant example for Bucs to follow.
Pirates to announce coach next Monday, says Khoza
The Glamour Boys let go of close to 20 players after a disappointing 2015/16 campaign. There have been calls for Pirates to do the same after a 2016/17 season in which the Mayfair-based outfit have suffered two huge defeats.
In November last year Pirates fell 6-1 to SuperSport United which resulted in Muhsin Ertugral resigning. On Saturday, the Buccaneers find themselves in a similar situation after Mamelodi Sundowns put six goals past Brighton Mhlongo.
As such, Khoza was quizzed about why the Sea Robbers were not making wholesale changes to what is seemingly an ageing squad.
"Your example of Chiefs releasing many players is totally out of context. Were those guys regular? Were they of a workable age?," he said at a press conference on Monday.
"Hindsight is a perfect science. We can all sit here and say that 'this or that should have happened'. Nobody can predict results.
"You need to factor in different things when you release a player. There needs to be a fuller understanding in these things."
