Veritably nothing is known in SA about 46-year-old Riveiro and internet searches turn up mostly that he has just three years’ head coaching experience at FC Inter Turku in Finland, and has not won silverware.However, the coach left Turku — saying he was seeking a new challenge — on good terms. He had steered the unfashionable club, who boast one top-flight Veikkausliiga title in their 32-year history, to second, second and third place from 2019 to 2021.

Veritably nothing is known in SA about 46-year-old Riveiro and internet searches turn up mostly that he has just three years’ head coaching experience at FC Inter Turku in Finland, and has not won silverware. Davids has parted ways with Bucs. However, the coach left Turku — saying he was seeking a new challenge — on good terms. 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 had steered the unfashionable club, who boast one top-flight Veikkausliiga title in their 32-year history, to second, second and third place from 2019 to 2021. Riveiro said he is looking forward to the challenge ahead. Before that, Riveiro assisted the former Finnish international Mika Lehkosuo to two (in 2017 and 2018) of his three Veikkausliiga titles as manager of HJK Helsinki. Riveiro left Inter in October last year and that was his last coaching job.

Head coach José Riveiro tells Panorama Football why he announced he would leave FC Inter Turku after the end of the season in 2021, when his contract would come to an end. I am delighted to have joined the club,” he said. 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. Where most of the rest of internet search information on Riveiro leaves only the bare bones of his story, thankfully more of the flesh was provided in a 2019 interview with Finnish tabloid Ilta-Sanomat. In it, Riveiro reveals he had a fear of flying so took a 73-hour bus trip from Spain to Finland for his first job as an assistant coach at FC Honka in 2014. It is an honour for me and my colleagues to have the responsibility to coach such an institution and compete for the highest goals. He was a childhood fan and adult season ticket-holder and then youth coach of the club from his city of birth and upbringing, Celta Vigo of Vigo in Spain. Mr. The coach admitted he was not a spectacular player. “We are going to work to make history together and build a team that we are all proud of. “With the style of play because there is a lot you get from a coach, so let’s give him a chance and see what he can bring.

“Gran Peña [Riveiro’s team] played in the Spanish third level, which is roughly the number one in Finland. I realised I wasn’t going to be good, no matter how much work I did,” he said. The Spaniard's lack of experience as a head coach will raise eyebrows with Bucs' faithful. He doesn’t speak much actually, he’s everything that Orlando Pirates need and South African football need. However, as a youth player he had started coaching an under-10 team when he was 17, and qualified for his Uefa B-licence coaching certificate at 19. ☠️ 🇪🇸 𝗪𝗘𝗟𝗖𝗢𝗠𝗘 𝗝𝗢𝗦É 🏴‍☠️ ..
