Bucs Coach: We Need To Learn So Many Things

Bucs Coach: We Need To Learn So Many Things

By Soccer Laduma - Aug 09, 2018 09:07 AM

Orlando Pirates head coach Milutin Sredojević claimed his side 'need to learn so many things' after their slender win over Chippa United.

The Buccaneers registered their first three-point haul with a 1-0 win over the Chilli Boys thanks to an own goal from Gaona Modisane.

Pirates had to play the last 20 minutes with 10 men after Mthokozisi Dube was sent off, but they managed to see off a late surge from the hosts to claim the win.

“First of all I believe we had controlled the game very well it was not easy they’re a competitive team that plays with good possession. Everything went well we were leading first half,” Sredojevic told SuperSport.
 
“In the second half we wanted to kill the game however that unfortunate red card of our player put us in the back foot. In the last 15 minutes, we were playing with a player less and the opponent had the advantage. They had the advantage of numbers and dominating.
 
“However, whether you’re winning or trailing you’re training to play with one player less. There’s many more to come. We need to learn so many things."
 
Sredojevic felt the midfield battle was a key factor in the encounter.
 
“Kurt Lentjies, [Thamsanqa] Sangweni and whoever their third player in midfield were battling with our three midfielders. This was the main battle, the mother of all battles. I’m happy with some aspects of our performance and I’m happy with the result but there’s so much to improve in the next matches ahead of us,” he added.

@Vhivha we must understand one thing for sure that,in Zambia they didn't go and collect authority of wining games.It was just a pre season friendly arranged by the officials of pirate,and even paid for the trip.How can we accuse the coach for taking the team to Zambia?Micho was commanded to go with the team,and that was a proposal visit to the team they wanted to buy players from.So please hands off the coach,he can't tell Mr Khoza what's to do,but Mr Khoza do.What can we say when Mokoena as an assistance was send to Brazil with the youngsters?Pirates have a clever leader by Mr Khoza.He prepares the team his way,and spend where is necessary.Cool down my BUCS,we are on the right direction.#UP THE BUCS.

I like it for Pirates, Micho is playing mind game here Pirates is unstoppable this season. He must bench Shonga, Nyatama and field Motswari and Thembinkosi L to upper their game level.

From the stands its difficult to understand the teams overall strategy coach. Last year we had a very promising season, which by all indications, we thought we were going to build upon. But by the look of things, it seems as if we are in the same process, having brought in a lot of players that seem to have forced their way in the team and we are back on square one in trying to find new combinations. If any team should be doing what Wits is doing, its Pirates. Am disappointed coach...Pirates should be doing what Man City did last season. Asserting ourselves from the onset after a season of building. But these two games leave a lot to be desired Mr Coach!

@LeCowhlohlo, Luc Eymael will be looking forward to show family business they made a big mistake by not appointing him, you never know what will happen come Saturday night. People are disparate for silverware.

@LeCowhlohlo, PSL is the Country 's Big Football League. Small teams have raised the bar, they are competing, take fau vs Wits encounter for instance, one team was hugely embarrassed, I am just saying if what I have seen of builders strikers thus far, is anything to go by, we can as well prepare for series of violence at stadiums this season.

@Mtwesi, Builders have been in the right track for a very long time, they play exciting football, but that count for nothing if they draw games or rely on lucky wins.

@setlaboswana I understand but sometimes we need to accept what we received on the day rather than to keep on complaining even is not necessary to do so. The fact is we won the game, no matter it was by crook or hook. We move on the beat goes on as well.

@Ruud-Krol(mugabel) : seconded juju...Mako needs to be dropped,he is not better than what we already have,even if it means reconsidering bringing Matlaba back it's fine.

@Voltaire, definitely, ooh...yes, you would have won on Saturday had it not been Shitolo 's own goal or should I say Sandilands' miss, but that does not change my view on Builders strikers, they look ordinary.

Indeed you need to learn a lot.Don't buy for the sake of buying even if those within Bucs tell you who to field don't agree.You must watch people like Screemer they are working for Chifs while they are paid by Pirates.He has a tendency of recommending players who are not Pirates material so that the team is not dangerous to Chifs.At Chiefs he was expelled for buying useless players like Zviripai.Even here at Pirates you have people who are not good for the team as a result you always come up with a weak team like yesterday.You must learn to use your strong team because players are there don't listen to Screemer or Palacious otherwise you won't win anything even this season.Your defence is weak because you leave players out.Your last 3 should be Jele Nyauza and Thopola with Mpontshane as keeper for now.Watchout coach
