On Saturday, on a three-year deal, as confirmed on the club’s official website.  Read: Pirates Up The Ante For Chiefs Target? As revealed by the Soweto giants, the Spaniard will be assisted by countryman Sergio Almenara, as well as Mandla Ncikazi, while Miguel Bellver Esteve and Tyron Damons will work as fitness trainer and goalkeeper coach, respectively, in the new-look technical team. Davids has parted ways with Bucs. View images of Pirates’ busy transfer activity:        Riveiro’s previous coaching role was with in Finland with Inter Turku, where he was in charge from January 2019 to December 2021, and Finnish-based Cape Town-born coach Leroy Maluka who also worked at the same club has given an indication of what to expect from the 44-year-old mentor. He led Inter to a second-place finish in his first season in charge.  Read: Pirates To Make Mabasa Announcement! “Well, I don’t want to say too much because he is the one that can answer these questions better but my experience from the time I spent with him, because I was the head of the academy fitness department at Inter Turku when he was also there. Riveiro said he is looking forward to the challenge ahead. He is a good coach. We have lost it in the past with European coaches that didn't understand the club and South African players," he added.

Later on, I got to work closer with them in the first team, and I went there to gain experience and to learn how they did things and they made that happen for me. I am delighted to have joined the club,” he said. His appointment came as a shock to many, but not tor former Pirates midfielder Benson Mhlongo. They welcomed me into their staff in the first team and it was an honour to be in their presence because they are top professionals,” said Maluka.

It is an honour for me and my colleagues to have the responsibility to coach such an institution and compete for the highest goals. Mr. Who knows what will happen? Maybe this is something they want to build with him,” Mhlongo told Sowetan yesterday. Riveiro is a very professional person with a sense of humour. “We are going to work to make history together and build a team that we are all proud of.

He’s very serious about his business. He doesn’t speak much actually, he’s everything that Orlando Pirates need and South African football need. The Spaniard's lack of experience as a head coach will raise eyebrows with Bucs' faithful. If the owners feel it is the right decision they took, who are we to argue?” Sergio Almenara and Mandla Ncikazi will assist Riveiro. I believe strongly that he is coming to change the football in South Africa. I’m very happy for this move because it’s people that I know personally, and Orlando Pirates is a club that I supported as a kid growing up.. So, it’s amazing for me as well just for them to go there to do what they have to do because I know that they are going to make a big impact. But Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs will always be clubs that bring coaches from outside.

The Pirates supporters need to just be patient and give them time, that’s all they need,” he concluded. How have Mzansi reacted to the news that Danny Jordaan will continue to be SAFA President? Find out by listening in the podcast player below! Share .
