Jonevret On Bucs Exit: It Didn’t Work Out

Orlando Pirates Chairman Confirms Kjell Jonevret’s Departure

By Soccer Laduma - Aug 02, 2017 02:05 PM

Kjell Jonevret says that things did not work out as planned for him at Orlando Pirates. 

Read – Breaking: Pirates Coach Resigns 

Jonevret has resigned from his position as the head coach of Pirates. The 55-year-old coach has been in charge of the Buccaneers’ bench since February.

The Swedish coach’s resignation was confirmed by the Soweto giants on their official Twitter account on Wednesday.

While he managed to lead Bucs to the final of the Nedbank Cup last season, Jonevret’s future as the team’s coach has been in doubt since the side finished their PSL campaign outside of the top eight.

Serbian coach, Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic, is expected to take over the reins as the new head coach for Bucs for the 2017/18 season. The Buccaneers have issued a full statement with the club’s chairman Irvin Khoza confirming Jonevret’s departure.  

“Orlando Pirates Football Club Head Coach, Kjell Jonevret, has tendered his resignation. Mr Jonevret has thanked the Chairman of Orlando Pirates, Dr Irvin Khoza, the Club and its supporters for giving him an opportunity to coach the Club.

Mr Jonevret said: “I would like to thank the Club for the opportunity. Unfortunately, it didn’t work out as planned. I wish the Club and its supporters all the best for the future.”

The truth is Kjell is the coach they didn't give him a chance. And now this new coach will do nothing to save Pei rats.

Honestly speaking, our problem at Pirates is not the coach. There seems to be an attitudinal problem with our players. These players themselves are not bad at all if you look at how they have performed in the past. But there seems to be something wrong with their mindsets. When the chips are down, you hardly see any of the players rising to the occasion like we use to see in the olden days. Simply put, we can change the coaches for all I care, but if our current crop of players have forgotten what it means to be a Ghost, we will get no where!!

The new coach was dismissed after 26 games in the past ten years, I think now he will be dismissed after 13 games due to the following p!Ayers if they will still form part of his squad:Issa Sarr,Manyisa, Mmakola, Qaba,Jele,Gabuza,Phungwayo, Matlaba plus Rakhale

Thanks for going. I dont think you were going to turn things around. You were given enough time to get to top 8. Go with your favourite players Manyisa, Gabuza, Sarr , Phungwayo, van Heerden

Kjell needed only to win the NetBank. He had all the time to prepare for that but after the hiding we got, i lost all faith that he could take us anywhere as a team..

I don't think coach was that bad, Pirates players are the ones to be blamed. And this thing of firing the coach based on Beer Cup is not fair because he did not select the first 11, but fans did and they selected the very same team that was being beaten by big margin last season.
