Ncikazi ‘ready’ to get ‘fired’

“As a coach, the day you get hired you must be ready to be fired.” Orlando Pirates co-coach Mandla Ncikazi said recently.

“I don’t think there’s a coach in any league who’s not feeling under pressure, and I’m in the same pool. So the pressure, I understand.

“I understand the frustrations of the Pirates supporters, they want their team to be in a better state. So more than me, it’s about the frustration they are going through.

“I wish I could change it so that it can be better. But it is what it is for Orlando Pirates right now. We are just missing goals.

“I think we are one of those teams playing so well but we just miss the main part. So it’s not about me, it’s about the supporters getting what they deserve.”
