Bucs Coach: The Title Is In Sundowns' Hands

Bucs Coach: The Title Is In Sundowns' Hands

By Soccer Laduma - Mar 18, 2018 09:31 AM

Orlando Pirates head coach Milutin Sredojevic refused to entertain discussions about the Absa Premiership title race despite moving one point behind Mamelodi Sundowns.

Pirates kept the pressure on Sundowns after reducing the deficit at the top to one point following a 2-1 win over Golden Arrows on Saturday.

Sredojevic refused to entertain such discussions, saying they’ll focus on that after their next encounter against Bloemfontein Celtic.

“We shall not think until the last match because it’s not in our hands. Sundowns have one match in hand. We shall think of our games as they come," Sredojevic told SuperSport after the game.

“We are now focused on our game against Celtic then we have five matches remaining after that. So we’ll think about that after our game with Celtic on April 3rd."

Although he was happy to have clinched the points, the Serb was not too pleased to see them conceding after being in cruise control at the point in time.

“First of all, I’m happy we won. But there are so many critical aspects of the game. At 2-0, we put in the most experience players to calm and lead the game to a peaceful end.

“Then we concede a second for a nervy end. This just shows we need to work on the mental aspect to know how to kill off the games and how to finish it off peacefully.

“We’re a work in progress. I’m happy everyone has done what was agreed to do. We have done wonderfully with our possession today. I think we deservedly won the game."

This thing of building a team for the future is pure nonsense, gone are days wherein a Club could keep same players for more than three seasons.

If playing exciting brand of football without winning silverware was acceptable, Papic would have stayed long at Bucs.

Coach you done good job and I must admit I was one of those who was not convinced about being good tactician,but we could have being far if you could have not played lazy cows especially Cowbuza.
