Who is the best new coach for the Pirates?

Despite the fact that coach Rhulani Mokwena has confidence. But it’s obvious that Orlando Pirates will be looking for a new coach. If they got an opportunity, they will take it.

Everyone has patience with young Mokwena. Despite the fact that he had a lot of criticism from certain quarters in the football corridors. He took this position after Milutin Sredojevic left the club. Since that time they can’t show some great results. They are not bad, but still, they are not the best.

All this is the main reason why they will be looking for some new coach. Just if you look at Soccer10 archive, in the last season you can see that they were good. They have a lot of expectations this season, they can’t be satisfied with this result.

Pitso Mosimane, Gavin Hunt or McCarthy as new Pirates coach?

In a lot of speculation, we can hear three names. But who will be an ideal coach for Orlando Pirates? Maybe someone who will get the best Supabets salary?


One of the candidates for this position is Pitso Mosimane. Everyone knows that Khoza is a good friend to Mosimane. Khoza always speaks friendly about Mosimane.

No one wants to upset the good work that Mokwena has done in the club. For that reason, they want to bring someone who will be able to adapt to the club. Specifically, someone who will continue to have a good relationship with the technical team. Also, Mosimane’s contract will end in June next year. There is a lot of rumors that this will be his last season in Sundowns.

Another candidate is Gavin Hunt. Orlando Pirates already want to have him in their lines. He had great success with SuperSport United when he won the league title three times in a row. We all know that for Pirates money is not a problem. If is needed they will spend money on a transfer market. Hunt is a coach who has big ambitions. A coach who will be judged by results, not by a good football.

Last but still important is Benni McCarthy. Currently, he is in Scotland with his family. After he was released from the position of head coach of Cape Town City. He loves to say that if you become once a Pirate, you are always Pirate. Also, is not a secret that the Bucs fans love Benni. They will love to have him on the coaching position.

Still, no one didn’t tell anything about the new coach. But for sure they are looking for someone. Mokwena is giving his best, but it looks like it is not enough.
