Bucs Coach: There Will Be A Lot Of Happy People
Orlando Pirates Coach Has Made Promise To The Happy People
Going into the Nedbank Cup semi-final game against Golden Arrows, Orlando Pirates head coach, Kjell Jonevret, has promised that there will be a lot of happy people after the team’s campaign.
The Buccaneers will be hosted by Abafana Bes’thende at the Princess Magogo Stadium on Sunday in a game that can go a long way to change the season for the Soweto giants.
Bucs are positioned 11th on the PSL log with only one game remaining for the team this season. The only hope for Jonevret and the team to achieve cup success would be to win against Arrows and go on to beat the winners of the Chippa United and SuperSport United game in the final on June 24.
The Bucs coach confirmed to Soccer Laduma that he is looking forward to winning his first cup in Mzansi.
“Of course, ha, ha, ha. Maybe I’m a little bit naïve, but I always think we can win every game. I can see how much it means to the supporters. When I meet people in town and everywhere, they say, ‘Please give us the cup! Give us the Nedbank!’ Of course, for a big club like Pirates, it’s very important. It’s going to be tough, but we have a chance. With all the top six teams out of the cup, except for SuperSport United, we should do our best. It’s going to be fantastic because this season hasn’t been what the supporters expected from the beginning, I think. But there will be a lot of happy people,” said the Swedish mentor.
