Orlando Pirates Football Club Head Coach, Kjell Jonevret, has tendered his resignation, said the club on Wednesday in a statement on their official website.

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."
