We come there – Josef Zinnbauer
“We know that we are now getting closer to the good places that we want at the end of the season. It is coming. We know that. “That said the head coach of the Orlando Pirates, Josef Zinnbauer.
“And before the game [Against AmaZulu on Thursday evening] I said, “Performance isn’t that important today.” We had a big game against Raja Casablanca three days ago and some players were out of shape after 60 or 70 minutes. You could see it. The schedule was tough.
“And that was why I said to the players, ‘Go out and fight for the three points,’ fight for the Orlando Pirates fans and fight for your club. ‘ And they did very well and I think we deserved to win the game. We were in the lead for most of the game. And we played forward, did our best and won. “
