Jonevret On His Orlando Pirates Future…

Kjell Jonevret Says He Wants To Stay At Orlando Pirates

By Joe Crann - Jun 26, 2017 07:04 PM @YesWeCrann
Orlando Pirates head coach, Kjell Jonevret, says that he’s still hungry to win things with the club, and wants to be given a full season to work with the team.
 
 
Speaking after this weekend’s 4-1 defeat to SuperSport United in the Nedbank Cup final, the Swede was reticent to discuss the future given the nature of the loss, but did admit that he wants to remain with the Buccaneers.
 
The 54-year-old explained that he wants to make ‘The Ghost’ happy, and will work ’24 hours a day’ in order to try and do so, although admitted that he doesn’t know what is happening at this point.
 
He said, "I get a lot of energy from the people outside, from the fans, I can see how much it means to them and I’m ready to work 24 hours a day just to make them happy. But there are a few things missing now to make us better.
 
“I’m hungry‚ I’ve just started this job and I want to have a full season to work with my team, but we have to wait and see.”
 
Meanwhile, he also says that they have outlined some changes that need to be made if Pirates are to improve, saying, “There were a lot of positive things to take in the season. I think there are a lot of discussions at the office for next season, but we have to wait and see what will happen. I’m not involved in all decisions. As you could see‚ we have some problems and that’s not just in the cup final. I’m 100 percent sure Orlando Pirates will start next season better.
 
"I have just begun and I hope they (Pirates) can listen to me and the other coaches about what we need for the future to be a better team. I like the experience here‚ I get a lot of energy from the people who I meet and I can see how much the club means to them.”
 
Jonevret’s future remains up in the air, and there does seem to be a chance that he might be the latest coach to face the chop at the club only four months after arriving, with Pirates having gone through eight coaches since 2011.

In the Final Kjell donated the Nedbank. 1.He brought back Mpontshane( after a long time he has been out of the Picture),Phungwayo(who had been attending a case until the finals date),Wome(who is thinking of his future as his contract is ending this month).Let alone Manyisa( who passes balls backward n sideways), brainless Rakhale(who showboats while the team is trailing),the Lazy Sarr(who plays every position without sticking with defensive duties),Jealous Makola(who plays for himself),Donkey Gabuza(Strikeless striker who runs stupidly with the ball),Silly energetic Matlaba(Who overlaps anyhow without checking his foward moves), Old Jele(who is like a statue these days.

@Pyton...That's it Juju, that's where I also lost my hope towards thus guy,I knwed bringing a Foreign coach who know nothing about SA-Football was always going to cost us,Kjell is totally lost giving him another season is just a gamble because next season Kjell won't survive even 2-Months.

Those who says Kjell must continue I can guarantee they are from Chiefs,Sundowns,Supersport or any other Psl clubs, they want to enjoy while we suffer. No-one can't c that in Kjell we are hopeless n directionless. I pray so hard that Khoza sees as we do n terminate his contract with immediate effect. I'm tired of this clueless copy of Palacios in terms of lacking football brain.

I agree with you Pyton, there is no change that Jenovret brought to the team, he has no direction, he used the same hopeless players, he lacks eye for talent, he failed to give other players chance to showcase their skill, he is hopeless

@Yido I agree with you. Prates is a big club with huge supporter expectations. Our frustration is definitely with the players and the way they play, no doubt about that. What frustrates me about Jelly is that I have not seen any new way of play or new approach from the team. The team is making the same elementary mistakes that they were making before he joined Pirates. By now there should be 1 thing out of 100 that shows the team has adopted from him. I know he has been here for 2 months but i see the same team, same players, same approach, same style, lack of energy, lack of commitment, lack of confidence and direction. If one can mention at least 2 things that have changed since he took over then I will keep quite.

Usually i would say don't blame the coach... However this useless coach has continued to play with the same players that are useless... How big is the Pirates squad... Do we not have strikers that are better than Gabuza? A striker that can actually score more than 3 league goals? How do you play Gabuza ahead of Ndoro... How do you continue to play makola? Manyisa, Jele, Matlaba...

Bucks supporters never learn to support their team instead they r running naked here voicing their different opinions to show dat they dnt knw wat is wth their team, all the coaches dat has resigned and fired frm the team its because of these stupid supporters, buying and realising of players at Pirates it never be a coach decisions so plz leave this coach alone

Even if u can work 24hours mdala u wont get that team right. N what make u think that next season u wll win silverwears wth pirates while u fail the team dessimaly? Better get rid of jele, phungwayo n makola and give athers a fair chance to prove themself too.

Pirates players are more than sundowns players in number, yet rats supporters are calling for new players.For the last 5years rats brought more than 20players in most of them were release without game time some of them were loaned out, infact only less than 10% of players signed since 2011 we played fair enough

@Golden Sword coaches change but the captain & other players don't change so that shows that a coach is used as bait for people who don't want to do their jobs

Coach you also costing us but I can't put a blame on you, I'll always put a blame on this thing of old KHOZA, I need to remind you this: Ruud Krol never do things ryt until he assisted by former Ajax Cape Town coach Craig Rosslee, jaa Krol able to lead Pirates to cup finals and runner-ups the Lig alone but It wasn't enough before Rosslee came...On the First season (2010/11) Krol and Rosslee worked together they able to take Triple (3 cups) which lead the team to defend their triple without Krol and Rosslee and they even played all finals in 2014 including Caf, it just because of team strength made by Krol and Rosslee before they leave....So why Khoza don't he see that Pirates is the Big team which need more than one couch to make us happy, Kjell Jonevret is not familiar with SA football, he needs the veteran assistance coach like what Sundowns is doing with the likes of Manqoba and Pitso.....this thing of B.Mhlongo and Harold Legodi will not work...even Eric Tinkler was not bad he needed veteran assistance coach but they decided to get rid of him....Back to players: aii aii this players are disappointing, we need goalkeeper coach coz all our keepers are good, and we need to sign Central Defenders to replace the old Jele n Gcaba, then we need to tighten our central meddle fielders.....We need Chabalala back, Cotzee, Sangweni and release the likes of CowSarr, Gabuza, Makola and others
