The German was far from impressed when his side trailed 2-0 at half-time

A charismatic speech from manager Josef Zinnbauer inspired Orlando Pirates to their epic comeback against Bidvest Wits last weekend.

The German was fuming after a far from convincing first-half that had seen the Buccaneers 0-2 down at half-time at Orlando Stadium on Sunday.

When his team returned from the dressing room, Pirates went on to complete an astonishing comeback to level 2-2 to take the match to extra-time where they eventually took the lead, 3-2, but conceded again in the last minute.

But their dreams of progressing to the next round of the Nedbank Cup were dashed in the penalty shootouts as they lost 3-2.

A video of how Zinnbauer delivered an impassioned halftime speech has been circulated and has had the clubs' faithful gushing over the newly-crowned coach of the month.

Check what some Bucs fans had to say: 

 In a separate incident, the German mentor is seemingly aware of the love that been shown in him by the clubs supporters and also paid homage to them. 

 

Pirates are next in action on Sunday when they take on Black Leopards in Thohoyandou.
