DUTCH legend Rudi Krol's future as Orlando Pirates' coach nears its end.

DUTCH legend Rudi Krol's future as Orlando Pirates' coach nears its end.

This after Pirates were bundled out of the African Champions League, preliminary rounds by Botswana's Gaborone United in Port Elizabeth yesterday.

Pirates, the super power, drew 2-2 with the minnows, and their campaign ended via the away goal rule.

The two sides drew 0-0 in the first leg in Botswana a fortnight ago.

Katlego Mashego and Bennet Chenene scored for Pirates while Mashego (own goal) and Stephen Maphosa grabbed the goals for United.

So far Pirates remain the only Southern Africa team to win the Champions League title. They were tipped to walk all over the Reds from Gaborone.

General secretary Kagiso Sebele described their victory over Bucs as the biggest ever achievement for United on the continent.

"Pirates did not stand a chance after failing to score in the first leg in Botswana. We are now targeting a place in the group stages of the Champions League," he said yesterday.

Pirates' officials could not be reached for comment. Their fans described defeat as a "disaster".

Meanwhile, Pirates' great Edward Motale has called for the dismissal of Krol after failing to win a major title with the club he joined two seasons ago.

Krol's chops and changes the winning combination and not considering good players like Gert Schalkwyk and Phenyo Mongala.

The general feeling is also that Pirates must also get rid of some of their players who did not come to the party, for they are equally to blame for the club's continued title drought.

Chairman Irvin Khoza must venture into the transfer market if he is serious about the league title.
