Former Bucs Coach: They Wanted To Do It Their Way

Former Orlando Pirates Coach Explains His Departure

Former Orlando Pirates head coach, Kjell Jonevret, says he loved working at the club during his short spell with them from February to August this year.

The Swedish coach resigned from Pirates last month, as confirmed by the club. The 55-year-old mentor has told Soccer Laduma that he is grateful for the opportunity he was given at the club and wished the team a successful season.

Asked what he thinks would have happened if he had decided to stay and not resign, the coach said the club wanted to do things their way and he was fine with it.

“We would have had six points now, ha, ha, ha. I don’t know. But, in the end, there was not a great spirit between us. They wanted to have someone else. When I put questions about scouting and academies, I don’t think they were prepared to listen to me. They wanted to do it their way and I think that is ok. They should do it their way.

“But I don’t know what would have happened. In the end, maybe they would have kicked me out... I don’t know. The six months I spent there taught me a lot about the future. But I loved working at Pirates and I think it was fantastic and I am grateful they gave me that chance. But it’s sad that they said those things in the end but I have no bad feelings for them. I’m really crossing my fingers that they have a good season,” said Jonevret.

Even Pep Guardiola cn struggle @ OPfc with Screamer n his accomplice Floyd however I'm not saying that that coach was good either.It will take a miracle for the current to survive 11 games especially should he starts winning.Once he starts winning those 2 Family Business agents namely Screamer n Floyd r gonna start interfering

fact is you were hired to be the coach of the first team, scouting and development was never your job, next time stick to your lane
