Tinkler is under pressure again

Tinkler is under pressure again

Well known former South African PSL player John Tlale has turned the future of Eric Tinkler into a local vs. foreign debate.

“We must believe in our local coaches and give them a chance, you understand,” Tlale told

“When we bring the foreign coaches in our country we always give them enough chances and time to settle to coach their way.

“We must do the same with the local coaches.”

Tinkler has come under enormous pressure, the latest being a midweek defeat against Free State Stars.

“Some of us at home, we don’t believe in our local coaches.

“I think he deserves a chance. Presently, if you look at it now, their regular players like Oupa Manyisa are injured.

“So, I think their players are tired of that because of playing week in and week out.”
