Orlando Pirates head coach Josef Zinnbauer appears to have met expectations at the Soweto club, according to administrative officer Floyd Mbele.

The German tactician took over at the Buccaneers in December last year and has led them to fourth position in the Absa Premiership standings, eight points behind leaders Kaizer Chiefs.

Mbele says Zinnbauer has done well thus far but it's a matter of wait and see regarding his future at the club.

"Well we are fairly satisfied given the task that was at hand in terms of him stabilising the team‚" Mbele said, as quoted by Sowetan Live.

"Obviously there are seven games to go‚ so I think this question is better responded to at the end of the season.

"It would be presumptuous. I mean anything can happen in those seven games‚ which could put us back to something that we wanted to avoid.

"I think in all respects it might be something that we deal with at the end and not now."
