Zinnbauer Reflects On Derby Victory
Posted: 1 February 2021
Orlando Pirates Football Club continued their dominance over nemesis Kaizer Chiefs with a hard-fought 2-1 victory over the weekend at the Orlando Stadium.
The Beautiful Game asked the German tactician of his thoughts post-match, and he said to us;
“Yeah I think it’s exactly what you said…Uhm, all the points you said is right. We speak about Kaizer Chiefs; it’s a big game, it’s a derby, we now have three points and that is for us very important.
“But for us, the thinking was three points, it wasn’t easy; you saw they have the quality, they have three wins in a row and two draws.
“They are not a team you can easily score (against), it’s not easy, and the weather today (Saturday) for Kaizer Chiefs and for us was not very nice. You need the fight, you need to win the duels, the defence work, but Richard (Ofori) was very good, so we’re happy we have another three points again,” he concluded.
The Sea Robbers are up to fourth on the DSTV Premiership standings, eight points behind pace-setters Mamelodi Sundowns FC, a gap Zinnbauer would like to see his charges close in the next couple of weeks.
