Micho Delighted To Have Beaten A 'Good Team'

Orlando Pirates coach Milutin Sredojevic was delighted with their 3-1 triumph over Kaizer Chiefs at the FNB Stadium on Saturday.

A brace from Luvuyo Memela and a solitary strike from Thembinkosi Lorch guided the Buccaneers to an impressive win.

The victory ensures they keep their title hopes alive as they continue to pile pressure on Mamelodi Sundowns by reducing the gap to four points.

“First of all, we were surprised the way Chiefs came at us with (Joseph) Molangoane and Rama (Ramahlwe Mphahlele) overlapping. They were overlapping our midfield and this is where they had the advantage," the Serbian told SuperSport after the game.

“We scored first and they scored from a set-piece. At half-time, we regrouped and looked at things and brought a tactical change to have more bodies in midfield to outnumber them."

The Serb believes the change of Luvuyo Memela for Bernard Morrison at the start of second half was spot on, because it immediately led to a goal which came at the right time for them.

“Memela scored at the right time in the second half. We could have scored more, but we are happy to have won against a good team. It’s good for South African football. I’m happy we got the three points,” he said.

Apart from Memela’s substitution, ‘Micho’ also explained the introductions of Mpho Makola and debutant Augustine Mulenga.

“Memela came in at half time and scored so it was the right change. With Makola, we wanted to have three central players in the middle so that we win that central area and with Mulenga we wanted to give him a debut and I believe he showed South Africans he can deliver so much,” he said.

@Thaglekgwara When we were beaten 6-1 we were dead with no coach.Now that we have started building,we have beaten sundowns 3-1,on derby we've beaten you 3-1.You can talk about 6-1,yes I understand that,but three points are the most vital than score.We are still on the building phase,next season we will be ready to compet.#UP THE BUCS.
