Micho Credits Win To Khoza

Micho Credits Win To Khoza

By Soccer Laduma - Jan 27, 2018 06:23 PM
Orlando Pirates coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic attributed their 2-0 win over Platinum Stars to club chairman Dr Irvin Khoza, who is celebrating his 70th birthday today.
 
 
Goals in either half from Justin Shonga and Thembinkosi Lorch were enough to see the Sea Robbers return to winning ways in the Absa Premiership.
 
“It was a special day for us because on the 27th day on the 27th minute with jersey number 27 Justin Shonga scored the opening goal for us. We controlled the game from start to finish, expect the first chance they had," Sredojevic told SuperSport after the game.
 
“Later on though, we took complete control of the game. We opened the game up at the right time. They needed to come out, we needed to protect the second ball because they played with Ngambi and Ntuli with the long balls."
 
The Serb explained the philosophy they adopted for the encounter that saw them secure the maximum points, as he praised his charges for a stern display.
 
“We played the ball on the ground with three philosophies, one to pass, two to push them out and three to have numbers defending against them.
 
“We then scored the second that practically killed off the game so I’m happy with three points. The players worked hard throughout the week,” he said.
 
The goal celebration with Shonga is an exact replica of the way basketball players celebrate, with Sredojevic exclaiming it’s a sign that they are on the right track.
 
“We’re having a good spirit in the team. We love each other. We love the jersey. We love our supporters and we work for them. We want to do everything for this team and the first thing is to have a platform to have good spirits and relationships," he added.
 
“So the celebration was like what you see in Basketball where they hit each other on the chests. So it’s our way to celebrate the goal and show we’re on a good track.
 
“This match is for our chairman on his 70th birthday, but for us as a technical team we’re already focused on the next game against Ajax Cape Town on Wednesday,” he said.

Zebras don't have a coach, why remove Shabbat when you just have to introduce Ntshangase for either Maluleke or Dube,Ntshangase and Tshabalala can form a deadly combination judging on how they play, poor decision by Cowmpela
