Pirates coach speaks on interference since his arrival at the club.Orlando Pirates has been having a good round of results over the last few weeks. The arrival of Jose Riveiro has inspired the squad to perform. They are currently at the top of the table after 6 games and they are looking good. This is only the early stages of the league and it will be interesting to see if they can maintain consistency. The pressure is always turned on and it can make or break them.
Jose Riveiro has been opening up to the media after he was introduced to South African football as an unknown figure. He has shared on many occasions that he understands what the club should achieve. He has emphasized the importance of forming a formidable team and implementing his philosophy. He is a calm figure who seems to be focused on his job and the task at hand.
Jose Riveiro sat down for an interview with Robert Marawa to speak on the current state at Orlando Pirates. He shared his thoughts on the first 7 games in the PSL and his observations on South African football as a whole. He was full of praises for the players in his squad and shared that they are working to perfect things.
Robert Marawa asked the Orlando Pirates coach whether there is any Interferences from outside the technical team. Jose Riveiro confidently denied that it is the case since his arrival. This is spared on by speculation around the football community of Screamer Tshabalala and Floyd Mbele interfering with coaches at the club.
The Spanish coach assured fans that he is freely doing his job and every decision is taken by him or members of his technical team. This laid the rumors to bed, however many weren’t completely satisfied. This is a conspiracy theory that has gained popularity and was encouraged by an incident which took place against Cape Town City in 2021. The people in question were seen passing on instructions to Happy Jele.
