Micho: You Can't Promise Anything In Football

Orlando Pirates Coach Milutin Sredojevic has vowed not to promise that they will win win the Nedbank Cup.

Read: Morrison Brace Sends Bucs Into Nedbank Cup Last 16

Orlando Pirates kept their quest for silverware this season alive with a relatively easy 2-0 win over Ajax Cape Town on Saturday.

It took them into the Nedbank Cup last 16 after a double from Ghanaian-born Bernard Morrison who scored at the end and start of both halves.

“In football, whoever is promising is not serious because you can’t promise anything in football. Al that we can promise is hard work and performances,” Sredojevic told SuperSport after the match.

“I want to give credit to the players because they abide by each instructions. We knew that in one moment they would crack and we used that in the first half and scored.

“Second half, we knew they needed to come out and in the right moment we scored the second goal. We should have scored many more because they opened up a lot.

“However, we kept our feet on the ground. All this is now forgotten. We’re happy we’ve gone through. We know focus on Chippa United in the league. But respect to Ajax, they are a very good discipline team that’s well positioned and are not giving up easily,” he added.

The Serbian-born believes the quality of Morrison will bring the best out of the rest of the team as it will raise the all-round quality within the side.

“Morrison stood aside for a while because of injury. He prepared well for this match. It was not easy because we made six changes, and when you change more than three players you’re losing complexion of continuity and consistency.

“So it’s been a risk but it has paid us back. Now for his (Morrison) place in the team, there are two players competing and that competition will rise in quality. Rise in quality will bring us to a level to get better and better and our supporters will be happy,” he said.

I wish we become consistent enough to at least finish second on the log so to qualify for champs league next season. With Chabalala, Mobara, Nyatama, Mlambo, Mulenga, Mahachi, Shonga, and perhaps a more matured Foster... We'll be ready to compete with the likes of mazempe, ahly, zamalek and co

Thanks to the technical team for the hardwork they're putting in since their arrival. I see a lot of improvement. We're playing the best football in the country now. As for yesterday's game I'm one of those who didn't believe in our boys after seeing so many changes in our lineup but they proved me wrong. I was impressed with sarr,mlambo,shonga n jele. Even though Morrison scored a brace I think he still can offers us more if only he shares the ball more to his teammates. Loved the goal celebration even more
