Sebola: A change of formation could help solve Orlando Pirates' goalscoring problem

The Buccaneers have been struggling to find the net on a regular basis of late, and Sebola feels Kjell Jonevret should change things around

Former Orlando Pirates striker Andries Sebola strongly believes that a change of formation could be the ultimate solution to the club’s goalscoring crisis. 

The Sea Robbers relied heavily on Tendai Ndoro for goals in the first round of the season, but they have not been as fortunate since the Zimbabwean marksman lost form late last year. 

“I think it is something that can work [a change of formation] because the majority of their strikers are good coming from behind like (Thabiso) Kutumela, who can create chances for them with his off-the-ball running,” Sebola told Goal .

The last time Bucs found the back of the net was when they beat Chippa United 2-1 at the Orlando Stadium.

Sebola believes that Kutumela, who continues to warm the bench, can be of assistance going forward.

“Kutumela can create spaces for them with his off-the-ball running and also a different attacking dimension because his pace can cause all sorts of problems for defenders,” Sebola said.

Reports previously suggested that the former Baroka striker, who topped the NFD goalscoring charts last season, could be sent out on loan next season.
