How Bucs Coaches Fared In Soweto Derby Debuts

Kjell Jonevret will be participating in his first ever Soweto Derby on Saturday afternoon, but how have previous Orlando Pirates coaches fared on their derby debuts? Let's take a look!

The Swede has overseen only one fixture since being revealed as Bucs' latest head coach last week, and it ended in a 1-1 draw with Polokwane City. 

This weekend's encounter against rivals Kaizer Chiefs will be one of the biggest games he will mentor in South Africa, and he will be hoping to get off on the right foot.

Sadly, though, history doesn't favour him as only two coaches, since the first treble-winning year, have managed to claim a victory in their Soweto Derby debut in a league match, and they are Augusto Palacios and Ruud Krol.

Eager to see how the other coaches fared in their first clash between Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates? Browse the gallery above!

How do you think Jonevret will fare?
