Happy Jele won't promise Pirates fans club will win silverware this season


Expectation among fans is high after a barren campaign last season brought two cup finals, but no silverware to Mayfair.

With Pirates set to celebrate their 80-year anniversary in 2017, the club is also seeking a route back into African club competition the following year.

"Everything has been going great so far, we all know Muhsin is a good coach, but that doesn't mean things will be easy for us next season,” Jele told Kickoff.com.

“As a player you can't go around saying we are planning to win this cup and that cup because people will remind you when it doesn't happen, saying, ‘in the media you promised to win us this and that’.

"All I'm saying to our fans is that they must continue giving us the same support as they've been giving us all along. I can't promise anything except the hard work that we are going to put in, because football is unpredictable."

Jele also refused to comment on what impact will the possible departure of star players Lehlohonolo Majoro and Sifiso Myeni will have at the club.

"I can't talk about other people, you know me, I don't like to discuss about other people," he said.
