'I stand by De Sa'
Jerry Sikhosana says people shouldn’t blame Roger De Sa when team aren't doing well.
JOHANNESBURG - Former Orlando Pirates player Jerry Sikhosana told Sports Talk that Roger De Sa is the best coach for Orlando Pirates.
"It was through Roger that the team got to the MTN8 final, even though they lost, and it is through him that they are in the CAF semifinal and unfortunately people forget that. It's not about the player but about the management."
The former Pirates striker argued people shouldn't blame De Sa when the team aren't doing well.
"I stand by Roger and he's still the best coach for Pirates."
Sikhosana added the type of football Pirates are playing is loved by fans, but there is a problem as the team suffers a goal drought.
The former striker said, "Failing to score seems to be the norm at Pirates these days. I wish I knew what they were doing wrong, but as a former striker I used to work harder than everyone else."
The sea robbers were held to a goalless draw by Esperance in the first leg of their CAF Champions League semifinal at Orlando Stadium on Saturday.
