It's Too Soon To Condemn Kjell Jonevret

Default

Orlando Pirates came from the worst season in the history of the club. At one stage they suffered a 6-0 defeat at the hands of CAF champions, Mamelodi Sundowns, which resulted in an outrage of fans invading the pitch.  

Augusto Palacios was replaced by Muhsin Ertugral who also suffered a 6-1 defeat to SuperSport United and the embarrassment saw head coach Mushsin resign on national television.  

A new head coach was named, Kjell Jonevret, who came late towards the end of the season and the woes kept piling up at Orlando Pirates. It was under Coach Kjell Jonevret that Orlando Pirates finished outside top eight.  

This led to many people, including Pirates supporters to think that maybe the Swedish coach also isn't good enough. Perhaps even some players might think a new coach is needed. It was reported that his future is being decided by Orlando Pirates' management. However, it is too soon to condemn coach Kjell Jonevret.  

This was the same coach who led Orlando Pirates to halt their losing streak and led Orlando Pirates to the Nedbank Cup finals. Surely, the coach deserves the benefit of the doubt. At least he should be given a full season or two before throwing him under the bus.  

Every coach has his own philosophy and coach Kjell Jonevret is no different. The players still need time to understand his preferred style of play. Bringing another coach means a new philosophy and more struggle for Orlando Pirates.  

 

Should Orlando Pirates get rid of coach Kjell Jonevret or should he be given a chance to prove himself?

signing a contract after seeing the players,you have to perform.Likewise Mushin came to Pirates,got players. He dismantled/made wrong transfers like Gyimah,Roy left without a solid reason.Now we must wait for a coach who has already let go of youngsters,some loaned.Jerry was right when he said people in Pirates bench must be those who know,understand and have vision for the club.No foreign coach will win in Africa except the one with African style and knowledge thereof!

The coach has nothing to do with wht is happening at pirates he found it like dis he took us to the final with the weakest pirates since 1937 but he tried to manage the unmanageable squad ever in history...a squad that lacks leaders,that lacks quality players that has lazy players...a bunch of average players who hv no goals nor dreams even if u cld bring sir alex ferguson to pirates nothin wld change..only option we hv is reshuffling and putting players on transfr list...hw cld u win a cup with jele a central midfielder?or sarr as ur playmaker...
