The DStv Premiership match between Polokwane City and Orlando Pirates took place at Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane, South Africa. The Orlando Pirates bench was in the spotlight during the game.

The club’s decision has proven to be the correct one. Riveiro’s process of joining Orlando Pirates was detailed in an interview with *Africa Futbolera *Almenara.

He explained that the club utilized a company called Analytics FC to search for coaches through data. This is the same company that facilitated Kevin De Bruyne’s lucrative contract negotiation with Manchester City in 2020.

Riveiro was initially contacted via email and expressed his surprise at the magnitude and organization of Orlando Pirates, especially after negotiations with other clubs from Asia and Europe. The organization and structure of the club became apparent after a meeting with the management.

Riveiro revealed that Analytics FC provided a service that allows clubs to request coaches with specific profiles and game metrics. After selecting options, interviews and presentations on the game model were conducted, leading to an agreement between the parties.
