Johannesburg – Orlando Pirates head coach Kjell Jonevret has resigned just after six months of being at the helm. He is one of 11 coaches that have coached the football club in the past nine seasons.


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.”
In accepting Kjell Jonevret's resignation, Dr Khoza expressed his understanding of the enormity of expectation; the Head Coach of a big Club like Orlando Pirates is put under from day one.
Dr Khoza said: "I wish Kjell Jonevret well in his future endeavours."
