De Sa was unveiled as the new Pirates coach replacing Augusto Palacios who is out due to 'health problems’.
De Sa promised that he will do his best to see that the club gets back to its winning ways.
"It really is a great honour to be here. An opportunity like this comes once in a career. And I will hopefully grab the opportunity with both hands," says De Sa.
"I know it is a hell of a challenge no doubt about it. Pirates won back to back trebles and everybody is expecting the same again.
"But I think I'm ready for it. I have had a good rest," he adds.
De Sa was also given the freedom to choose his own assistant, but says he won’t rush into it as he will see what he has to work with first.
