Bucs Coach Explains Makola's Absence

Bucs Coach Explains Makola's Absence

By Soccer Laduma - Sep 15, 2017 10:35 PM

Orlando Pirates coach Milutin Sredojević has explained why Mpho Makola did not feature despite being named in the starting line-up on the team-sheet.

Makola was named among the starters when the team sheet was released, but he did not appear on the pitch as Thabo Qalinge started.

However, the Serbian coach reveals Makola picked up a knock in the warm-up and could not continue.

"He finished the whole match (against Ajax), however he got a stomach and a back problem so we didn't want to risk him," Sredojevic told SuperSport after the game.

The Buccaneers coach insists his charges played according to plan on the night despite not getting the win.

"Very tough match against a very good team. It is not by accident that they've collected eight points up to so far," he added.

"We've played according to our plan. We still need to do polishing touches because on Tuesday we're playing a good team in Cape Town City."

If this coach wants to win he must bench Jele & Gabuza then you'll win. But I know you are the face of those behind the scenes that won't happen

Coach Makola need to rest i don't like to see him sick but to warm him with the bench will help the team because this guy is the waist now he get tired so early just give other players the chance to play like Qalinge coach he play good fudball

Makola and Gabuza must be loaned to the 3rd division clubs, because no team in the premiere league would be associated with such failures.coach must relegate them if he wants to save jis job, ginish and klaar

Makola's absence is what I wished for and I hope that knock will keep him out for out the entire season and Gabuza should follow his granny Makola because he's also tired,I mean he's the worst striker in the history of my beloved Bucs even Chinyama was much better compared to this old lazy cow

The Polish that you need, is to Pull Gabuza out of the starting line up and bring in Kutumela and Nkosi.

Was the Coach accused of misleading the media, playing dirty or playing mind games? Was he forced to clarify the situation or he is just doing it out of courtesy.

Micho is doing a great job, building confidence, making the defence solid, protecting the defenders against offensive teams. My only issue is Gabuza,if he is there coz of his size and pressure on defenders, then we can get nkosi there coz at least nkosi scores.
