Roger De Sa has resigned with immediate effect

Orlando Pirates coach, Roger De Sa has today resigned from club with immediate effect..

In his resignation letter De Sa asked that his gratitude to the chairman of  Pirates, Irvin Khoza, for affording him the opportunity of coaching a club of Orlando Pirates’ stature be placed on record.

“I will always be appreciative and I take with me fond memories of my time at the club. I wish everybody at the club including the technical team, players and management success in the future”, said De Sa.

In accepting the resignation, Dr Khoza expressed his gratitude to Roger. Roger has achieved at Orlando Pirates more that he did anywhere before. He reached three finals including the African Champions League final. The last time Orlando Pirates reached the final of this prestigious tournament was fifteen years ago.

“I know Roger would have loved to add the second golden star to the Orlando Pirates logo. He now knows how to get there. All that is left is for him to clinch it. A feat I have no doubt he will achieve in his career as a coach”, said Khoza.

“Roger leaves Orlando Pirates with an enhanced CV. I wish him well in his future endeavours”, added Dr Khoza. Eric Tinkler will take over the reigns as caretaker coach.
