Orlando Pirates broke the hearts of their loyal fans following their humiliating defeat to SuperSport United in the Nedbank Cup final on Saturday.
The majority of their fans expected them to at least end the season with a piece of silverware, but playing Matsatsantsa was always going to be a huge mountain to climb, especially looking back at how the same team demolished them in November 2016.
We also unrealistically expected a lot from @Orlando_Pirates to win a title when they struggled throughout the season.— Thami (@thamster7) June 24, 2017
Former Bucs coaches, Mike Makaab and Roger de Sa were also disappointed with how things turned out at the Moses Mabhida Stadium.
It's time that some of these players realise what a privilege it is to wear an Orlando Pirates jersey. It's no ordinary jersey... — Mike Makaab (@MikeMakaab) June 24, 2017
So, what's the way forward? How should Pirates make their problems disappear? It looks like Julius Malema has a better solution.
