Kjell Talking Cup Final For Pirates After Disappointing League Campaign

Orlando Pirates Turn Focus To The Nedbank Cup

By Soccer Laduma - May 18, 2017 05:15 PM

Orlando Pirates coach, Kjell Jonevret, has turned his attention to the Nedbank Cup and aims to take some positives from a disappointing 2016/17 season.

The Buccaneers have relinquished their record of being the only team that has never finished out of the top eight on the log, since the PSL’s inception in 1996.

Pirates’ disappointing 2016/17 Absa Premiership season has left them in 11th place on the log with only one game remaining, following Wednesday’s 0-0 draw against Ajax Cape Town.

Speaking in a post-match press conference at the Orlando Stadium, Jonevret said it would be good for Pirates to focus on doing well in the Nedbank Cup.

“It’s a big chance for us in the cup. We just have to be braver when we have the ball but we need to stay as we were defensively,” said the Swedish coach as quoted on Bucs’ Twitter account.

Pirates will travel to KwaZulu-Natal for their Nedbank Cup semi-final game against Golden Arrows at Durban’s Princess Magogo Stadium on Sunday.

“Since I arrived, we worked on being more stable. We’ve done that because we haven’t lost a lot of games.

“Our focus now from tomorrow is in getting this next game in Durban under the belt. Then we go back for the last league game & final,” said Jonevret as quoted on the club’s Twitter account.

@lejapapii my champ, to touch on the statement I wrote abt Kjell as coach, I never said he's a gud coach. I even feel like tomorrow headlines should write 'Jonevret has been fired b4 the Semi-final of the Nedbank Cup'. Honestly we have no coach until now,finish n klaar.

The problem with Kjell is that he is using the same tactics and expects miracles. He must use players like Morrison and those who had a limited game time because they are hungry. Rakhale must not be afforded an opportunity as we need players who will drive crosses not ball jugglers with no vision.

kjell you have done your job congratulations, now leave. pirates doesn't need a coach who doesn't defend his players in the media, u have from time to time shown your disbelief in the players at your disposal and why must we think differently now because it a cup? its still the same players that u criticize. telling players to be brave is not going to help them, coach the team on how to approach the game, consolidate and how to finish teams off, we are not going to a Zulu impi wars we don't need bravery, we need a qualified coach with technical acumen. we defenately don't need to loose less, we need to win more, if u can't do that, u know where the door is at
