Palacios: I don't know who is coming in

Cape Town - Out-going interim Orlando Pirates coach Augusto Palacios says he is unaware who is coming in to take the role of permanent Bucs boss.

The Soweto giants are expected to unveil their new head coach on Monday, with Palacios having overseen his last match in charge of the ailing club on Saturday evening.

The 65-year-old former Bafana Bafana coach guided his side to a 2-2 draw with Cape Town City at the Cape Town Stadium where Riyaad Norodien netted a last gasp equaliser after Roland Putsche and Lebogang Manyama had cancelled out Dove Wome's first-half opener.

The draw went someway to appeasing the fans of the club after their humiliating 6-0 loss to Mamelodi Sundowns last Saturday and 2-1 loss to Bidvest Wits this past Wednesday.

Palacios told Soccer Laduma: "I don’t know who is coming in, I always say I’ll die for this club, no matter which position I’m in, no matter who is coming, I’ll wear black and white all the time until I die."

He added: "I don’t know nothing, the chairman called us to wish us the best, he was confident of a reaction from the players after the loss against Bidvest Wits, and we had to give a reaction."
