No budget for pity parties

After the last match, Orlando Pirates coach Rhulani Mokwena has insisted that this team needs to soldier on and endure their struggles rather than feeling sorry. They don’t have a budget for pity parties anymore if they want to be in the top teams.

Pirates again dropped points on a Saturday. They come back after being 2-0 down against Cape Town City. Pirates change the score on the 3-2, but poor defending left them set for a 3-3 draw at full-time.

They have only two wins from their opening 10 matches across all competitions. All pressure now is on Mokwena. In a short time, fans could become unhappy with the unfavorable PSL Soccer results.

They need to soldier on rather than look for pity

The 32-year-old coach is having none of the pressure. He knows that supporters can be passionate, while further stressing that they need solider on, rather than look for pity.


As he said, there is no pressure. Only more passion than anything. After the last game he said that he speaks with supporters, he got the amount of emotional attachment from them.

If we ask him, he is sure that all supporters see that they were giving the best that they can. Unfortunately, when it’s your turn, it’s your turn. They need to go through this period.

In future games, they need to be brave. They can’t host pity parties anymore, because they spend all the budget on that. Coach Mokwena said that they don’t feel sorry. But they need to keep going to be strong in future games.

In the last game, we can see one situation where the judge can show on the white dot. For a coach, is the time that they got the Video Assistant Referee system or VAR in Absa Premiership.

For them, this situation could be ended in a different way. But the judge is the one who is responsible for a situation like this. Maybe in the future, they will get VAR. Until then they need to be satisfied with the judges they have.

Will we see VAR in Absa Premiership, or will Orlando Pirates win in the next game? We can only wait to see. But be sure that you will find all the sports news on Soccer10.
