Best & Worst: SuperSport v Pirates

Best & Worst: SuperSport v Pirates

By Soccer Laduma - Jun 24, 2017 10:36 PM

Soccer Laduma selects the six best and four worst players, following SuperSport United's 4-1 thrashing of Orlando Pirates in the Nedbank Cup final.

Tired of reading? Click through the gallery to see who were the best and worst performers on the night.

Bradley Grobler: 8/10

Grobler was superb throughout the clash. His hold up well good, while he also combined well with Brockie. He registered a brace and an assist.

Thuso Phala: 7/10

Phala had a quiet first half, but he burst into life in the second stanza. He was a menace down the right flank, and got the assists for third goal and fourth goal.

Reneilwe Letsholonyane: 7/10

The veteran midfielder controlled proceedings from the onset and won his battle against Manyisa. He also played a part in the opening goal.

Morgan Gould: 6.5/10

Gould was rock solid in the heart of the SuperSport defence and did well to frustrate Gabuza on many occasions.

Dean Furman: 6.5/10

Furman was impressive in front of the back four, which allowed the attacking players to have more freedom.

Grant Kekana: 7/10

Kekana deputised for the absent Michael Boxall, and he certainly proved to be a suitable replacement. He was solid defensively and also claimed the assist for Grobler's first goal.

Worst:

Oupa Manyisa: 4/10

Even though he scored a late penalty, the Pirates skipper barely stamped his authority on the game, as they were outplayed by Letsholonyane and Furman.

Mpho Makola: 4/10

Makola struggled to get the better of Kekana, and offered nothing going forward.

Thabo Matlaba: 4/10

Went to sleep for the first goal, as he allowed Grobler to get in unchallenged. He struggled going forward, while most of SuperSport's attack came down his side.

Issa Sarr: 4/10

Much like Manyisa, Sarr failed to impose himself in the game and was overrun by the SuperSport midfield.

Why is Sarr, Wome, Gcaba, Manyisa & gabuza still playing for Pirates? The game has transformed and this makes Manyisa is a liability bcoz he is slow & doesnt have the sense of urgency

Orlando Pirates lost the game and in my opinion not all the players played bad. Manyisa played well, he tried his best to distribute the ball to our other attacking players. Mpontshane had a great game,it's unfortunate that four goals were scored against him,and I don't think he should be blamed for that. Jele, Phungwayo and Matlaba were always caught napping and I strongly feel that is where the team needs to be work on; buy new good and strong defenders. The only dedicated player on that department was Mobara. Issa Sar played badly and I think signing a central midlefielder would be great for the team because so far he has been failing to stamp authority in that position. Makola and Wome played badly and I think Makola should be benched and Wome should not be signed permanently for next season. Another player who played well and gave it all is Rakgale, he showed great maturity as a player, and created good scoring opportunities for Gabuza and Wome. Gabuza tried his best, however he was unlucky not to have scored. However he did not get good supplies to score, since makola and Wome did not provide any assistance and support to make it happen for the team. Ndoro played like a headless chicken when he came in with Morrison thus I feel they had no impact in the game. I know a lot of fans blame the coach for fielding the aforementioned players, however he had no better options on that regard. Last but not least the management needs to overhaul the team, get a player of Sangweni's calibre, two strong central defenders, and one creative midfielder.

Ertugral left this useless team because he saw that it can't be fixed and the players are cows and finished.

@Paula Ertugral killed Pirates from start,his appointment and firing of Tinkler was a blunder by Khoza

From the coach tactics and biased selection of Gabuza ahead of Ndoro,playing Sarr as a number 10 are all disastrous.Pirates will be relegated next season if the whole team are not overhauled.Why do refuse to play talents like Memela,Lorch,Qalinge,alongside Rakhale and d yunger ones that are still ambitious as against the old cargoes that has nothing more to be hungry for

The Rats were simply wayward, hopeless, aimless, direction-less, hapless on the night! Everyone was simply clueless about why they were at Moses Mabidha on Saturday. It was as if they were taken from the tarven where they were enjoying their skokiaan. Everyone was just kicking forward directing the ball "To whom it may concern"! This team is a shamble, fit for NFD if not ABC Motsepe.

Why all senior players played nonsense? They must fire all of them and I think Ertugral saw what was coming for him as a coach!,,
