The Buccaneers are winless in their last seven league matches, but Palacios urged the fans not to forget their past successes.
“Every club goes through a transition,” Palacios told the media.
“It’s happening at Pirates now, but the people sometimes forget what this club has done in the past; to win the treble,” Palacios added.
Palacios added he will die for the club, before refuting reports that he is soft on his players.
“I hear people say that I am soft, maybe these people slept with me one day and saw that I am soft,” Palacios bemoaned.
“There are a lot of new players that need to be moulded into the team. I hear people say that Palacios should be fired. But I don’t want the job. I am doing this because my heart is in this team."
“I would die for this club. Any job that the chairman would give me, I would do it. The press in Peru say that the people (at Loftus Versfeld) were trying to kill me."
“This is the first time I have experienced something like this, but I need to be strong and soldier on,” Palacios said.
