Cape Town - Orlando Pirates utility-man Abbubaker Mobara believes that Kjell Jonevret must be given support as he has good qualities as a coach.

The 23-year-old, who was one of the club's few bright sparks last season in which they finished outside of the Premiership's top eight, added that learning from mistakes was key for everyone at Pirates.

Mobara capped off the 2016/17 campaign on a positive note when he was named Nedbank Cup Player of the Tournament. The Buccaneers reached the final but were thrashed 4-1 by SuperSport United.

"We disappointed our fans but we are determined to make them proud of us in the new season," he told the SowetanLIVE website.

"We have learnt a lot of lessons from our disastrous season. We are ready to win trophies and bring the club's pride back."

Mobara added he was fully behind Jonevret, saying: "He is more than a coach and is always keen to teach us things we do not know.

"Players and coaches love working together when things are only good, but with him it is different because he is always there for his players."
