Jonevret recently suffered his first, and now only, loss in a Soweto Derby, losing 1-0 to rivals Kaizer Chiefs in the Carling Black Label Champion Cup.

Eyewitness News reporter Morena Mothupi says management may need to review their strategy.

This is the second time now where the coach resigns in six months and that is not good for a brand as big as Pirates.

Mothupi says the team is sitting with an aging squad.
