Orlando Pirates coach Eric Tinkler appears to have lost the dressing-room and could soon be fired from the club.

This is after sources who were at Pirates’ 3-3 draw against Maritzburg United at the weekend revealed a Bucs official was seen sending instructions to Teboho Moloi at half time when they were trailing 3-1.

“He told that guy to tell Tebza (Teboho Moloi) to take over the half-time talk and tell the players to play for the badge and forget everything else as it would be sorted out soon,” said the source who was in the VIP section at Harry Gwala Stadium.

An improved Pirates team emerged for the second half and scored the two goals to finish the game at 3-3. Moloi was also the more vocal and animated in the second half, shouting instructions to the players.
