‘Pirates want to win the league, but they did not achieve it, and that is exactly why the coaches did not stay, because their expectation is to compete and win the league, and of course it did not happen. .

Tinkler also spoke about the new signing of Douglas Mapfumo and how he can be helped to score as many goals as possible.
“I think we have enough. It’s important for people to understand that it’s not just the task of an attacker to score goals, but that it’s everyone’s job, and if everyone can contribute, that’s exactly what we want, “he continued.
‘We brought in the young striker Douglas, and when I see him practice, I can see that he has a natural ability to score goals.
“It’s now about the supply and giving him the opportunity to score. We can not just expect a goal scorer to come to score goals; where does the offer come from? Everyone plays a role in it.
“The way we play, goals have to come from midfield, the wide areas, and I think we have a team that is more than capable of doing that.”
