Cape Town - Orlando Pirates head coach Kjell Jonevret has tendered his resignation from the Soweto giants after less than six months in charge, the club announced.
Jonevret was appointed as the head coach of the Buccaneers on February 20 - taking over from Muhsin Ertugral - and after less than six months in the hot seat has resigned from his position after a period of bad results.
Pirates released a statement where the 54-year-old Swedish coach thanked chairperson Irvin Khoza and supporters for handing him the opportunity to coach the club.
“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,” Jonevret said.
In accepting Jonevret's resignation, 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.
Khoza said: "I wish Kjell Jonevret well in his future endeavours."
