Touching Tribute To Magents From Former Coach…

Former Orlando Pirates coach, Milutin Sredojević, has paid a touching tribute to Happy ‘Magents’ Jele, while he has also declared a legendary status for the Buccaneers captain.

In Pirates’ match against Swallows FC at the weekend, Jele hit a milestone, celebrating his 400th appearance for the Buccaneers, which is a feat that no other player has achieved in the club’s history.

The 34-year-old Middelburg-born player went on to produce a Man of the Match performance as he led Bucs to their first victory of the season, with the team subsequently moving to third place on the DStv Premiership log.

When Jele began his career at Pirates 15 years ago, Sredojević was the head coach and was on his first spell with the club, giving the then 19-year-old his debut.

“How time flies, back in 2006 gave first chance to, at that time, a boy Happy Jele. Now, 15 years (later), he became a man, completing 400 matches in holy Orlando Pirates jersey. Already a legend but I trust (and) believe that with his maturity, magic number 500 is not very far. Congrats (and) safe journey,” the Serbian coach posted on Twitter.
