Bucs Players Given A Break, Return Date Confirmed

Orlando Pirates Squad To Be Evaluated

By Soccer Laduma - Jun 28, 2017 10:37 AM

Orlando Pirates players have been given a break by the club, following the end of their 2016/17 season.

The Buccaneers ended what has been a disappointing season for the team with a 4-1 loss against SuperSport United in the Nedbank Cup final at the weekend. The club has confirmed that the players have been given a break and will be expected to return for pre-season training in July.

Bucs took to the club’s official website to confirm what is expected to happen at the Soweto giants in the upcoming weeks.  

The 2016/17 season has officially come to a close following the conclusion of the Nedbank Cup final between Orlando Pirates and SuperSport United.

As the break signals a downing of tools as it was for the players and some technical team members, there will be no resting for management as they undergo a debriefing of the season.

With the defeat to United, falls the curtain on a rather disappointing season (for) the Buccaneers, who finished outside of the top eight for the first time in their history in the Premier Soccer League, suffering two record defeats at the hand of United (6-1) and Mamelodi Sundowns (6-0) along the way.

Over the next couple of days, management will be going through the entire roster as the Club prepares for the new season.

The players have since been given a break by the Head Coach and will be expected to return for preseason training in the week of the 10th (July 2017).

With the Club failing to qualify for the top eight, this means Jonevret and his charges will have an extended preseason programme which includes the annual Carling Black Label Champions Cup against Kaizer Chiefs on July 29. 

The full Orlando Pirates preseason schedule will be released in due course.

In early June Andile "Ace" Cele said the following about Pirates, I qoute "Former Orlando Pirates midfielder Andile Cele did not mince his words when discussing Bucs' current squad. "To be honest, any player can play for Pirates nowadays. In the past, Pirates were equal to (Kaizer) Chiefs and you could compare them to (Real) Madrid and (FC) Barcelona in Spain," Cele told Isolezwe. "Not everyone can just sign for Barcelona and share the same dressing room with (Lionel) Messi - it takes a special player or quality to be in the same dressing room with him," he stressed. The former South Africa youth international went on to question Bucs captain Oupa Manyisa's quality. "If a top player at Pirates is Manyisa then this means any player who scores one or two goals in the ABC Motsepe League can be signed by Pirates," he said.

That idiot gave them a break? For what? Before the Nedbank final they had a break of full month. Those deserves a tough training, the one that should be given a break are those who hv been sidelined for obvious reasons.

It seems that the admin of the team is not working cos by now they should have the plan for the coming season,debriefing is for person who had hicups not the one who failed dismally,postponing the technical staff report won't help cos the writting is on the wall.The rotten potatoe must be removed before they resume with preseason.The other thing the players must not come back with that black vest cos it seems it is a bad omen.The technical team with certain playing personel must be replace.Its pity that we only wright t and read among ourselves the ones who need this the most are busy with their nonsense and don't feel the pain that we have.
