Orlando Pirates fans gush over Zinnbauer’s half-time talk


0

A charismatic speech from manager Josef Zinnbauer inspired Orlando Pirates to their epic comeback against Bidvest Wits last weekend.

The German was fuming after a far from convincing first-half that had seen the Buccaneers 0-2 down at half-time at Orlando Stadium on Sunday.

When his team returned from the dressing room, Pirates went on to complete an astonishing comeback to level 2-2 to take the match to extra-time where they eventually took the lead, 3-2, but conceded again in the last minute.

But their dreams of progressing to the next round of the Nedbank Cup were dashed in the penalty shootouts as they lost 3-2.

A video of how Zinnbauer delivered an impassioned halftime speech has been circulated and has had the clubs’ faithful gushing over the newly-crowned coach of the month.

No wonder they number 2 😑👌🏾

I’m not a Pirates fan but this is how a coach should instruct the message after a poor performance in the first half. Under JZ you guys will go far

 In a separate incident, the German mentor is seemingly aware of the love that been shown in him by the clubs supporters and also paid homage to them.
