South African football fans don't believe that the Bafana Bafana legend will save the KwaZulu-Natal club. What do you think?

Maritzburg United are sitting at the bottom of the Premier Soccer League table.

The former Cape Town City and Chippa United coach got South African Twitter talking when he was appointed by Maritzburg on Tuesday.

It's difficult to find a follower who's optimistic that Tinkler will save the club. Here's how South African football and the fans reacted on social media.
