After what was viewed as a shock 0-0 draw against Richards Bay last Saturday, Khanye felt Riveiro’s selection decisions cost the Sea Robbers points.

“As a coach can you come up with good combinations? I mean, how do you bring players from the stands into the starting line-up in a game where you need points?” Khanye said, as per iDiski Times.

“[Pirates] won’t challenge for the league. If you want to challenge Sundowns for the league, if you have 10 games on the table, win nine and at least draw one.

“I mean when you play Kimvuidi on the left in the front three it’s a problem. Even Mofokeng is not a player that plays on the left, he is a player that plays central, but if you take him there and play Kermit as a number 10, it’s a problem.

“It shows that the coach runs out of ideas and the question now is did you sign the players yourself or someone did do that on your behalf?,” the former winger added.
