Several Orlando Pirates youngsters have been training with the first team where they are doing enough to impress coach Josef Zinnbauer.
With the reserve team flying in the Multichoice Diski Challenge with a third place position and Pirates missing a healthy mix of younger players in the first team, Zinnbauer has said what many Pirates fans will enjoy hearing.
“We regularly have players from the youth team or under-21 team with us in training, and we have fun with them,” said Zinnbauer to Kick Off.
The German coach further expressed the possibility to promote a few players to the senior matchday squads - which is of course up to the players themselves. “I’m happy about one, two or three players that we have, and I think they have maybe a chance in the next months to move from the training sessions into the squad.
“It’s a question for the player himself, and if he has a good performance then my door is open for this,” added Zinnbauer.
