Ncikazi: It Will Offend Pirates Or Arrows
Posted: 31 August 2021
Orlando Pirates Football Club’s Coach Mandla Ncikazi has seemingly refused to discuss how it has been for him at The Sea Robbers having made a switch from Lamontville Golden Arrows.
The Beautiful Game asked Ncikazi on the difference in class between Abafana Bes’Thende and The Buccaneers, but he said to us;
“Dangerous question in a sense that any response from me will either offend Golden Arrows, my previous employer, and it’s not in my nature to respond. Because any response, (Orlando) Pirates, my current employer, if I show any likes on Arrows…’why didn’t you stay at Arrows’?
“So I always avoid to respond to questions on the parties that I’ve worked for, and out of respect my brother, please, take it in good spirit because I wouldn’t want to comment on that because any comment, you’ll either quote me and criticize Arrows, or Pirates will be offended by my response…with due respect,” he concluded.
Ncikazi and Fadlu Davids have taken over the reigns at the club after former gaffer Josef Zinnbauer decided to resign, forty eight hours after losing to rivals Moroka Swallows FC in the MTN 8 quarterfinal a fortnight ago.
