While some reports have gone as far as announcing that Orlando Pirates head coach Josef Zinnbauer has resigned, the club has a different take on the matter.
“Orlando Pirates can confirm that the Club has granted the head coach leave to go home to Germany.
“Unfortunately, out of respect for Mr Zinnbauer and his family we cannot divulge anything more except to say that his son is in hospital.”
Zinnbauer made the announcement that he was on his way back to Europe after his side’s emphatic 3-0 win over Kaizer Chiefs on Saturday afternoon.
This triggered reports that he may have resigned, but Pirates confirm he “will be back soon”.
