Cape Town - New Orlando Pirates assistant coach Bradley Carnell says it is an honour to be part of the Soweto giants' backroom staff.

The Buccaneers appointed Carnell as new head coach Muhsin Ertugral's assistant ahead of the new season.

Carnell joins Pirates from Free State Stars, who are said to be in talks over the potential sale of their franchise to National Second Divison outfit Moroka Swallows.

"First and foremost it's important for me to have a good relationship with Muhsin [Ertugral] because I want to do more than just lay cones," Carnell told the club's official website.

"I am here to contribute, learn and grow. Pirates is a huge brand in South Africa and on the continent as a whole; a person will be judged on his work and not just his title.

"I have had a good progression of my career so far. I retired from professional football in 2011, then in 2012 became the coach of the UJ Varsity Cup team and in the last six months I was the Assistant Coach at Free State Stars and now I have made it to the big leagues so to speak with Orlando Pirates.

"I am hungry for success and I want to do all I can to contribute in a positive way. I want to prove myself and also make people proud of our achievements."
