Orlando Pirates are said to be toying with an idea of getting a new goalkeeping coach after the recent blunders by Wayne Sandilands.

A former Pirates keeper Patson Banda has also heavily criticised current incumbent Vukusic Ivica, saying he was not the right man for the job.

“Banda’s criticism came when the management were already starting to worry about the goalkeeping in the team. Things have never been good since (the late) Alex Revoredo left. The team needs a strong goalkeeper coach who will win the confidence of the players and motivate them to do better,” said a source.

Another source said former Bafana goalkeeper coach Alex Heredia could make a surprise return to the Buccaneers soon.
