Orlando Pirates legend Ronnie Zondi is not happy with the performance of the team.

Though he is excited about the 4-1 DStv Premiership win over Stellenbosch FC, Zondi says the club's biggest enemy is consistency.

The victory saw the Soweto giants move to fourth on the league standings.

"It's good that Pirates won and they are scoring goals, but there is still room for improvement," Zondi tells KickOff.com.

"Especially now that Sundowns are dominating, and there's still the last derby game against Kaizer Chiefs, which puts them under pressure because there is still a lot of catch-ups.

"The current result has not proved that they are current MTN8 Champions. But now they are picking up the pace, and it's good for the team that they are showing consistency.

"They've not been consistent. They tend to slip after winning two games. It's easy to blame it on the coach, it would have been nice to know the terms and conditions of his employment.

"He came as a closed book, we don't know much about him. He comes from Spain so we have a lot of expectations. But on the field of play, we don't see anything that resembles Spain.

"It becomes a problem, then you are also tempted to question him as well saying, what are his credentials exactly? Because he's an unknown person we don't who he is.

"So it would be easy to blame it on the coach.

"Everybody must take responsibility for what is happening currently at Orlando Pirates.

"The management cannot be happy with the way things are going currently, and obviously it impacts the coach, it impacts the players as well.

"Everybody has to take responsibility."
