MTN8

Vermezovic: Nothing Is Over

Despite winning their first leg MTN8 semifinal match against Bidvest Wits 2-0 on Sunday, Orlando Pirates coach Vladimir Vermezovic says ‘nothing is over’ just yet.

Second half goals from Siyabonga Sangweni and Thabo Matlaba gave Orlando Pirates a two goal advantage going into the second leg semifinal next weekend, but Vermezovic is taking nothing for granted.

“Nothing is over,” said the Buccaneers coach.

“Wits is a strong squad and it won’t be easy next week.

“We will celebrate the win tonight and then tomorrow we will start preparing for our game against AmaZulu.

“We did a good job today and I am satisfied with our game, but there is a lot of room for improvement.

“We have a lot of quality in our midfield, but sometimes when they are not having a good day it is difficult to build-up play.

“We weren’t so good in the first half, but with the experience from last year, where we played a lot of cup games, we maintained the game and the second half we took our chances.

“Two away goals is very important, but a 2-0 scoreline is a very dangerous result, but we have a lot of experience in our squad and I hope we reach the final.”
