The South African football community is still trying to figure out why the Soweto giants hired Jose Luis Riveiro as the new head coach of Orlando Pirates. This was a big surprise.
The 46-year-old Spaniard had been unemployed since Inter Turku in Finland fired him at the start of the 2022 season.
He worked for the Finnish giants for three years. In his first year, he helped the team get into the European competition, which gave him a lot of attention.
At the same time, a lot of people are still trying to figure out why he was chosen.
Pirates' biggest rivals, Kaizer Chiefs, reacted to the news on their official Twitter account with a bit of surprise that they didn't say much about.
The chiefs' only answer was: "." Which suggests that someone is "reflecting or deeply pondering," which means that Chiefs are already doubting Riveiro's appointment or making fun of it.
After them came the sports director Kaizer Motaung Jr., who also used the same emoji to say the same.
It's really cringeworthy to use the official Twitter account of another club to criticize a different club for hiring a coach.
It was, to put it mildly, not a professional move.
One could also say that the Chiefs have to wait and see if hiring Arthur Zwane as their new head coach will pay off for a team that hasn't won a big trophy in eight years.
How do you think the Chiefs and Motaung Jr. will react to the shocking new coach for the Pirates?
