The former South Africa head coach is expected to return to the Pirates development academy to continue with
his duties as the technical director


Orlando Pirates interim coach Augusto Palacios has stated that he will accept whatever decision the management of club make regarding his job.

The Peruvian tactician, who turned 65 last month, was appointed following the departure of Turkishi coach Muhsin Ertugral two months ago.

However, Bucs endured a poor run under Palacios towards the end of last year and the club have since intensified their search for a new permanent coach.

“I [will] accept whatever decision the management makes. We have been working okay with the players,” Palacios told The Sowetan.

The Buccaneers resumed training last week to prepare for the second round of the 2016/17 Premier Soccer League (PSL) season.

“Tendai Ndoro and Edwin Gyimah are away at Afcon and [Abbubaker] Mobara and [Gladwin] Shitolo have injuries,” he concluded.

Bucs have been linked with former Free State Stars coach Giovanni Solinas and current Uganda coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic.

Bidvest Wits are scheduled to host Pirates at the Emirates Airline Park in a league game on Friday, February 3.
