    The Togolese man made 17 appearances, netting four times in the process for Pirates.

    “Mandla has gone back to his old club in Denmark and we won’t be renewing with him.

    “I am not making any changes besides that I have brought in Zac van Heerden to be the conditioning coach.

    “He is somebody I have worked with in the past during my time at Bidvest Wits, and who I know very well and who understands how I want us to train. I am very happy with Kaitano [Tembo] and Andre [Arendse],” he addded.

    SuperSport face Zambian giants Zesco United in the quarter-finals of the Confederation Cup and Tinkler has called for good preparation ahead of the tie.

    “We are going to Zesco United in Zambia and at least it is not a long trip, but the opposition are strong.

    “We need to study them very carefully to ensure that we go there and put on a good performance. We would like to go to the semi-finals and win it at the end,” he concluded.
