Bucs Coach’s Future Uncertain

The future of Kjell Jonevret as the head coach of Orlando Pirates has become increasingly doubtful, as the club progresses with its preparations for the 2017/18 PSL season.

As reported in the latest issue of Soccer Laduma, two names have been bandied about regarding the Bucs’ head coach role. The Buccaneers are finalising its preparations for this weekend’s Soweto derby against Kaizer Chiefs for the pre-season one-day tournament.

However, the Pirates’ head coach position remains unclear, with indications from sources close to the club suggesting that there could be changes going into the new season.

It is understood that those within Bucs’ management are divided regarding Jonevret’s position at the club. It is believed that one faction at the club wants the Swede to stay, while another has lost confidence in him after the team's poor performance last season.

Pirates ended the 2016/17 season in 11th position on the Absa Premiership log, which is the team’s first finish outside of the Top 8 in the club’s history of the PSL era.

Bucs have since been linked with their former coach, Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic, to take over at the helm. The Siya crew revealed the news last weekend, with his imminent exit expected from the Uganda national team.

As reported by the Siya crew this morning, reports coming out of Uganda suggest that Sredojevic is on his way back to the Soweto giants for the new season.

In addition, former Polokwane City coach Luc Eymael’s name has also been bandied about among those linked with Pirates.
