Pirates Coach 12 years with no Trophy What about Steve Komphela?

Pirates, Kjell Jonevret
Jonevret, who was a striker during his professional football career, turned out for AIK Fotball and IF Brommapojkarna in his home country in the early 80's.

Before going on to win the 1989 Norwegian Cup with Vikings, he also had a stint with Swedish side Vasalunds IF in the early 90's when he approached the end of his playing career.

Jonevret began his coaching career at Vasalunds working as the assistant coach between January 1993 and December 1994.

He returned to Brommapojkarna the following year as the head coach, but he left the club for AIK where he served as the assistant coach during the 1996/1997 campaign

Short stints as head coach at IK Sirius, Vasteras SK and Cafe Opera followed. Jonevret finally got his big break when he joined Djurgardens IF, one of Sweden's top clubs, in 2004.

Under Jonevret's guidance, the club won the Allsvenskan title and Svenska Cupen in 2005 and he was named Swedish Manager of the Year following a successful campaign.

In 2006, he was given the opportunity to coach outside his own country for the first time when he joined Norwegian club Molde FK where he spent four years.

Steve Komphela on the other hand has never won any major trophy as a coach but he is coaching one of the best teams in South Africa Kaizer Chiefs. Its nice that people are criticizing Irvin Khoza for bring the Sweedish coach in Orlando Pirates colours but they must first check how their teams are doing in terms of buying players and coaches.

  1. I'm not a Kaizer chiefs fan nor Orlando Pirates fan but a football supporter...Many are criticizing Orlando Pirates coach saying he won't make it at Orlando Pirates because of his long spell as a coach without a trophy...That's nonsense Steve Komphela is a Kaizer Chiefs coach and he won any major trophy except Black Label.
