Jonevret On Why He Quit Pirates

Kjell Jonevret Has Bemoaned The 'Political Aspect' Of Orlando Pirates

Kjell Jonevret said that he left Orlando Pirates because he felt that he ‘could not continue’ at the club for several reasons, including the ‘political aspect’ that he described as ‘extraordinary’.
 
 
The 55-year-old left the Buccaneers earlier this month after weeks of speculation, with Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic quickly being appointed as his successor at the club.
 
Jonevret has now spoken about the fact that he was ‘not very involved’ in decision making, going on to say that there are many others who are involved in that aspect of the club.
 
Speaking to Fotbollskanalen, he said, “It’s not a decision that comes from nowhere. The working conditions are very special in the club. You are not very involved‚ and that’s frustrating.
 
“You want so much to help but you really cannot. I felt that it could not continue as it was and felt it was best to leave. So I quit.”
 
Expanding on that, he went on to say, “Communication was not very good and it was difficult to make my voice heard. It’s a big club with very many who want to be involved and make decisions. The political aspect is extraordinary in the club.”
 
“But there are no hard feelings at all,” he said. “Me and the club separated as friends. This was the best for both.”
 
Regarding the idea that Micho’s appointment was lined up before his exit, Jonevret told the publication, “They probably knew that I was not happy at the end. There had been rumours that they are looking at other coaches and that they should get rid of me.
 
“The chairman said he thought I did a good job but that they might still move forward with someone else in the future. They were well prepared for my departure. You do not want to get fired – that’s not fun. This felt fair to me.”
 
And lastly, on the future, the Swede explained that he’s looking to get back into the game, saying, “I still feel incredibly lucky to keep up with my hobby. If any club is interested in me then I will listen to them. I'm not tired of coaching‚ on the contrary‚ I'm more determined. I love football and have much more left to give.”

"As usual" there are always two sides of the story, Mr Jonevret story is presented. Can we have Pirates response now. We will therefore apply our minds once both sides stories are presented. Regards Mr Thamsanqa Bunga

Thanks Jonevret for telling us the truth, there is no sound management at Pirates, one could see the signing and firing of players who are not even chance to prove themselves, look at Mkondolela for example, he was signed from Baroka, he was not given chance to play, he is frustrated, he is about to be released, why signed him in the first place? There are many players in the same situatiö at Pirates. As long as Pirates is run like ANC, its going nowhere

There's a say from the locker room of pirates that every coach that comes there becomes a trainer and there's indeed a real coach behind closed doors "I suspect Screamer"
