Orlando Pirates coach Josef Zinnbauer says they are using all methods to ensure that they prepare for the return of the League. 

With the PSL still suspended, Bucs like all other teams rely on their players training on their own and using technology to keep in touch with each other.

The Bucs coach told the club’s media team via a video: “We rely a lot on online technology to carry out our daily sessions with the players. Our program has focused on the following key components, conditioning training, and running programs, team playing unit and we have team meetings to discuss our tactical elements of our game model.

“We have been cooking together and we play board games and we do everything to keep our team socially connected. We have also been working with different external coaches to assist the team in preparation for the field. The players are working hard and we are looking forward to being back on the field soon.”

Zinnbauer added that they are all looking forward to seeing every one of their fans back by the time things return to normal and they should continue to stay safe.

“We would like to use this opportunity to encourage you to stay safe and stay at home. When you go out please put on a mask, use hand sanitiser and wash your hands often. I speak for the whole team when I say that we are looking forward to seeing all of you again soon.”
