“They deserved to win”...those were the words did not come from the mouth of a commentator or a neutral, but they came from the man who is supposed to lead our team to victory in every game we play. Those words belong to Vladimir Vermezović!
Even if Pirates didn’t play to their usual standards and Mpumalanga Black Aces probably were the better side on the night, it’s still not something you want to hear your coach say whether you are a player or supporter.
Perhaps the Serb could have chosen his words a little more wisely. I support being gracious in defeat but please coach let not be too gracious!
