Zinnbauer: His An Intelligent Player
Posted: 31 May 2021
Orlando Pirates Football Club have had an inconsistent season this calender year and it was apparent yesterday when they lost 1-0 against TS Galaxy in Mpumalanga.
However, The Beautiful Game asked Head Coach Josef Zinnbauer of the youngster Azola Tsobeni, who has not featured much after his breakthrough season, and he said to us;
“Azola? Yes, Azola has had gametime but he is a young player and we have to be careful with young players. In terms of his (football) education, he can make mistakes, if you put the players in the wrong timing in the game, he can make mistakes.
“It’s always going high and it drops (referring to Tsobeni’s form) and it’s totally normal in this football times, but he is a good player and he has a good future. He will be successful, hundred percent, but games in South Africa is very difficult because there is aggressive players and it’s not so easy.
“It can also destroy his confidence if you make a wrong decision but yes, he is a player who has a future here but he has time, he is a clever player and he knows.
“Normally, in his position we have intelligent players and he is also a intelligent guy and he understands what we want, we have games and also next season, he will come,” concluded the German.
The exciting 18-year-old will be hoping to play some part in the club’s remaining two games of the season.
