Orlando Pirates coach, Kjell Jonevret described their 4-1 loss to SuperSport United in the Nedbank Cup final as a 'nightmare'.

The Buccaneers missed out on the Nedbank Cup for the second straight season, as they were thumped by the Tshwane outfit on Saturday evening. 

“Of course it is a nightmare, this is not what we had hoped for,” Jonevret told SuperSport after the game. 

“A fantastic atmosphere, all these supporters here and we wanted to have a little bit of a revenge for what happened earlier in the season.

"When asked where did it go wrong for Pirates, he added,"There is not so much to talk about, they (SuperSport) were a much better team than us today. But at the same time, I thought in the first half we were a little afraid and worried when we had the ball.

“They stepped up pretty high and I liked that, but there were too many players that were ball-watching, and the build-up we had problems.

“Ok, a silly goal but 1-0 is not too bad, but in the second half a lot of players started doing crazy things and not following the game-plan. But I can understand there was frustration out there. It's a tough stay for us."

SA is so corrupt ,from Zuma downwards, I would not be surprised that players like Gcaba, Jele, Nyauza, and others pay a certain percentage of their match fee to Screamer so that they can be kept at Pirates.

@Sthenjwa I agree with you 100%, you know football you are not just howling. OP must clear up ,they have been playing with the same useless players for 3 seasons ,new players are not given a chance. The so called senior players are preferred and they are all useless including the captain.

This man deserve a boot , he changed nothing even his record attest to that. He played the same back line which was leaking goals. The same players which were loosing games as if Pirates has 15 players. He is afraid of the so called senior players which to me are all useless including the captain.

@Telo I fully agree with you member....As disappointed as I am right now, it is still important that we keep level heads and not blame the coach for this....Last season we accused Tinkler of being an intern, I wanted Tinkler gone from Pirates with all my heart. Then Muhsin came and quit halfway through the season. We again blamed him and called him a coward. Jonevret has come in and there is still no change. It is clear as daylight that it's the players that are problematic at Pirates. We could hire the best coaches in the world, but I can guarantee you that they will fail with the current crop of players we have....A lot of senior players( Manyisa, Sarr, Jele, Gcaba, Gabuza etc.) need to be shipped out....I seriously don't see Pirates winning any silverware in the coming 2 seasons

very early to judge the coach, mind u, he has inherited the problems left by other coaches and there's not a single player in the squad recommended by him, let's give him a season to prove himself but cannot do it alone, he should have budget to buy quality players he needs and offload some ''already retired employees'' we need players with fighting spirits the likes of Dean Furman of SSU, Jerry Skosana, Lucky Legwathi, etc

The first step towards self recovery is to admit that you are in trouble...once you have come to terms with that you can start the process of rescuing yourself and or allowing people to come to your rescue. But, pride has in often times rendered the buffalo to his ultimate price which is down the stomachs of the lions, while if it had run away while it still had time with the rest of the herd it would have lived to see another day. If Irvin Khoza is nolonger passionate about the game of football let alone Orlando Pirates as a brand then he must relinquish the powers that he has and allow fresh people with fresh ideas to run the team. We will never fault him for that instead we will be gratefull for what he has achieved... At the moment the entire Orlando Pirates brand needs to be relooked. Everybody associated with it needs to be appraised and the winds of change to allowed to filter through. The current management structure has to be removed (Screamer, Floyd, Thandi Merafe, Nkosana Khoza) and replaced with fresh young ideas. The times of Pirates being a giant are long gone and the end of this Institution is nigh if Khoza take scant regards to being criticised for this mess. Jonevret eithe, is not the right coach for Orlando Pirates atleast the current crop of players so big headed such that he has little or no chance of teaching old dogs new tricks. Jonevret has limitations, he is a small team coach with small ambitions, he is either a yes man to Screamer and his mindbenders or has no man management...The less said about the players the better. Those clowns had done a thorough job in humilating us...They are the worst players to have ever been in the teams employ. At the rate things are going Orlando Pirates is going to get relegated next season...the same fate that took Swallows to its demise.

RDS used 80% of the current team,he achieved nothing with them, Tinkler 95% he also achieved nothing,Palacios 98% he achieved nothing as well, now is Kjell with 100% he also following the same trend of reaching the finals bt with being runners up. For me it is the brave coach that's needed at Bucs, who will give a new pure starting eleven n let these Manyisas to rot in the stands.
