IN PICTURES: Orlando Pirates Return to Pre-Season Training under New Head Coach

PICTURED: The Orlando Pirates start their preseason workouts with their new head coach in charge 

The Orlando Pirates have made their formal return to their first pre-season training session under the direction of their newly hired head coach, Jose Riveiro. 

Before the start of the new season, the Spanish head coach will be working hard to develop a strong rapport with his players. 

Prior to the beginning of the new season in August, it is anticipated that the Pirates would compete in a number of preseason competitions. 

On Friday, July 1, a significant number of players from the Pirates' first team attended the team's training session. In addition, the Pirates' new head coach and his entire technical staff were present. 

In the upcoming season, Riveiro and the team will go up against a formidable adversary together. 

The previous year, Pirates did not place in the top three, which meant that the club did not have a chance to compete in any CAF championships. 

Because Mamelodi Sundowns have been so dominant over the course of the previous several seasons, the head coach will have a lot of pressure on him to win some trophies for the club, get them into the CAF competition, and compete with Mamelodi Sundowns for the league championship in the coming year.
