Bucs Coach’s Future Uncertain

The Future Of Orlando Pirates Coach Is In Doubt

By Soccer Laduma - Jul 26, 2017 11:40 AM

The future of Kjell Jonevret as the head coach of Orlando Pirates has become increasingly doubtful, as the club progresses with its preparations for the 2017/18 PSL season.

Read – Reports: Micho Heading For Pirates, Contract Agreed 

As reported in the latest issue of Soccer Laduma, two names have been bandied about regarding the Bucs’ head coach role. The Buccaneers are finalising its preparations for this weekend’s Soweto derby against Kaizer Chiefs for the pre-season one-day tournament.

However, the Pirates’ head coach position remains unclear, with indications from sources close to the club suggesting that there could be changes going into the new season.

It is understood that those within Bucs’ management are divided regarding Jonevret’s position at the club. It is believed that one faction at the club wants the Swede to stay, while another has lost confidence in him after the team's poor performance last season.

Pirates ended the 2016/17 season in 11th position on the Absa Premiership log, which is the team’s first finish outside of the Top 8 in the club’s history of the PSL era.

Bucs have since been linked with their former coach, Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic, to take over at the helm. The Siya crew revealed the news last weekend, with his imminent exit expected from the Uganda national team.

As reported by the Siya crew this morning, reports coming out of Uganda suggest that Sredojevic is on his way back to the Soweto giants for the new season.

In addition, former Polokwane City coach Luc Eymael’s name has also been bandied about among those linked with Pirates.

If former coach is brought back to Orlando Pirates is none other than Ruud Krol. This is useless chopping and changing coaches. It leads us nowhere.

The problem with pirate is that they fail to crucify the people responsible for the club failure the coach came in only to find a sinking ship nothing he could have done the players are to blame for not fighting for the pirate's jersey the so called big name stars should be crucified and released from our team. We don't need Micho he failed let Kjell continue what he has started and see what he will do and please anisiyeke ngo Mhlongo wahluleka loyo munt emapalini

for me the best coach for pirates is Rudi Krol, bring him back and rope Tebogo Moloi and Papi Khomane as his assistants the you will see the results. I am also not happy Why the let Mhlongo to go , the boy is still young he only needs a good guidence unlike taking someone old who will stay with us for one season the he is finished
