Hlatshwayo: Working With Zinnbauer…
Posted: 27 December 2020

Newly appointed Orlando Pirates Football Club’s skipper Thulani Hlatshwayo exclusively tells The Beautiful Game how it has been for him working with Josef Zinnbauer.

Tyson, who arrived in the off-season from Bidvest Wits, explains how it has been for him under the stewardship of the German, saying;

“Ja, obviously he is a good coach from Germany; tactically we are learning a lot. I have played with a lot of guys that I know off the field, they were able to help me adapt because I’m coming from a different team. I mean playing from the back is coming okay; day by day, and having one on ones with the coach and explaining to me what he wants from me.

“Coming from Bidvest Wits, we didn’t really do a lot of playing from the back, but we used to do that at Ajax Cape Town, so it’s a matter of me adapting. Coach Zinnbauer has been a coach and we can see what he is trying to bring to the team,” concluded Tyson.

The 31-year-old Hlatshwayo has already helped the Sea Robbers lift the MTN8 trophy a fortnight ago, the club’s first major success in six long years.
