MTN8 2018

Micho: It's Unacceptable To Concede The Goals We Did

Orlando Pirates head coach Milutin Sredojevic says it was 'unacceptable' with the way the Buccaneers conceded against SuperSport United in the MTN8.
 
 
Pirates bowed out of the MTN8 at the first hurdle after losing 4-3 in a penalty shoot-out on Saturday evening.
 
However, the Buccaneers was most displeased with they way in which his allowed SuperSport back into the game.
 
“First of all, we started the game very well. Scored that goal and then in a short period of time, we conceded. We came back strongly, played much better. Had that chance to win it in regulation time with a penalty, it did not happen," the Serbian told SuperSport after the game.
 
“Usually teams that miss chances like that one is mentally down. It looked we were going to penalties. We missed those penalties, opponents scored and they won. Penalties is a lottery. Football has once more shown to us, something that is the truth, football is not what you deserve but what you get.
 
“If it is about deserving, I believe with all the domination we had we were supposed to win today’s game but we didn’t. We need to accept this, pick up the pieces and go back to the drawing board and continue working.
 
“It’s unacceptable to concede goals the way we did from the areas we supposed to protect. Practically both goals came from the same area where we shouldn’t conceded such goals.
 
“We need to improve effectiveness in front of goals. It’s good to play in front of a reinforced defence to learn how to play against teams that are reinforcing defences to create more chances and entrances in attack and how to utilise what brings what you need to win –which is to score goals."
