Roger de Sa resigns as Orlando Pirates coach

Posted: 31 January 2014 Time: 17:33

Roger de Sa has resigned from his job as Orlando Pirates coach.

The former Bidvest Wits mentor has been under immense pressure following three final defeats in the MTN8, Telkom Knockout and CAF Champions League, as well as a faltering start to the League in 2014.

Now Pirates have confirmed his resignation, with chairman Irvin Khoza saying: “Roger has achieved at Orlando Pirates more that he did anywhere before. He reached three finals including the African Champions League final. The last time Orlando Pirates reached the final of this prestigious tournament was 15 years ago.

 “I know Roger would have loved to add the second golden star to the Orlando Pirates logo. He now knows how to get there. All that is left is for him to clinch it. A feat I have no doubt he will achieve in his career as a coach. Roger leaves Orlando Pirates with an enhanced CV. I wish him well in his future endeavours.

De Sa says: “I will always be appreciative and I take with me fond memories of my time at the club. I wish everybody at the club including the technical team, players and management success in the future.”

This is very bad, very sad news and with this shocking news I now guarantee fokkol for at least 3-8 years of drought again and I hope all those asking for this won't cry here, they will now get what is deserve to them. I wish DeSa all the best wherever he go. What great coach. He will always be remembered by those of us that appreciated what he stand for. Once and always.
