Eric Tinkler won't comment on rumoured Maritzburg United move for Orlando Pirates midfielder Siphesihle Ndlovu


Tinkler was not in the mood to talk about transfer movements as his team prepares to face AmaZulu in their next league game at Harry Gala Stadium on Friday night (20h00).

The Team of Choice have been linked with a move for their former player Ndlovu, who has not been playing much at Parktown.

However, the coach tried to quell the rumour was an abrupt reply when asked if he was interested in bringing Ndlovu back to the club.

"I'm here to answer about the AmaZulu FC game," he retorted.

Being one of the on-form teams with his players attracting interest from other clubs, Tinkler remains confident his players won't be distracted by transfer talk.

"It all about man management, talking to the players, making them aware that they have a responsibility, they are professional footballers," Tinkler said.

"They need to apply themselves in the correct manner. There's always going to be rumours, the press like to claim the source, there are many sources, but you've just got to deal with it.

"I think players have been in the game for long enough to know what to believe and what not to believe."
