Tinkler On Qalinge's Skill
Eric Tinkler On Thabo Qalinge
Orlando Pirates winger Thabo Qalinge performed a skill in their game against Kaizer Chiefs on Saturday and coach Eric Tinkler said that he supported his players doing tricks and as long as it helps the team.
Tinkler told the Siya crew that Qalinge's skill motivated his team mates and they almost scored a winning goal after that skill.
"He didn't do very well in the first half and i don't remember him go past Gaxa and at half time I told him to look for the ball and take on the defenders," Tinkler said.
"You saw even Chiefs didn't have a good game until Yeye stood on the ball and the supporters cheered him and they started attacking us. As for the skills as long as it leads to something positive then we encourage him.
"We showed him the video of the Confederation Cup where he did the same trick and I think that motivated him going into the game. I have said this before any skill a player does should aim at helping the team and that's what Thabo did which is good."
