We’re turning the tide – Pule
Orlando Pirates star Vincent Pule believes the Buccaneers have turned the corner under coach Josef Zinnbauer. Undoubtedly beating their bogey opponents like SuperSport United will leave the Buccaneers’ faithful with hope.
“He is a coach that wants heart to be there more than talent, because you can have all the talent but if your heart is not there, nothing can happen.” winger Vincent Pule told Kick-Off.
“He wants hard workers. The mentality has to be right and that’s what he has changed at Pirates. It has really changed.
“We’ve been doing well until now. We must maintain the level of focus and anything is possible. It will be great if this generation can win a trophy, it’s been very long without silverware.”
