Words you will hear: Why did Jonevret resign?

While there is speculation about who will take over from Orlando Pirates head coach Kjell Jonevret, the biggest question left to be answered is, why did he resign?

The former head coach tendered his resignation on Wednesday after only six months with the Soweto giants.

There is no doubt fans were skeptical about his appointment but the resignation has raised further concern as Jonevert became the team's 11th coach in nine seasons.

READ: Orlando Pirates head coach calls it quits

I can't help but think something is fishy in the Pirates camp, obviously he had a disaster season when he took over with 6 out of 18 matches, but he was looking forward to this coming season and wanting to build and now we see his resignation, and as concerned Kaizer Chief fans we have to ask why and what are the reasons fro his resignation.

Johnathan has two possible reasons why Jonevert has called it quits.

I heard a rumor that Dr Khoza wanted to sign Advocate Dali Mpofu because he offers the best defense in the country.

Number two is that Kjell has been there for six months and we all know what the number six means for Pirates, he panicked and tendered his resignation.
