Micho: It Was The Worst Performance Of The Season

Micho: It Was The Worst Performance Of The Season

By Soccer Laduma - Apr 05, 2018 10:03 AM

Orlando Pirates defeated Bloemfontein Celtic to keep their title hopes alive, but head coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic felt it was the Buccaneers' worst performance of the season.

Goals from Musa Nyatama and substitute Augustine Mulenga steered Pirates to a 2-1 win over Celtic at Orlando Stadium on Wednesday evening. 

However, the Buccaneers coach was far from happy with his side's display against the Free State outfit, who finished the game with 10 men.

“In 35 matches this season, this may be our worst performance, whether it was the pressure of having to win or not, we have to go back and analyse to come back much stronger than this," Sredojevic told SuperSport after the game.

“We need to improve every department, defensively, midfield and attacking-wise. The only positive for today is that we won the game.

“We did a total risk when they went a man down. Putting four strikers upfront and launched a five-man attack which paid off in the end.

“We pulled (Thamsanqa) Gabuza to defence. The first time he has played there and we needed that because Happy was injured and it paid off because we won the game. The only positive is the three points. 

“The rest of the things are for the constructive critics and the rest of the things are to improve to come much stronger next week when we face SuperSport."

Sir Micho you are right, we were very bad. Maybe the win is giving false reflection of what really happened on the pitch. The last time I've seen us play that bad was under Mushin and Kjell Jonevred when we were unorganised getting sixes left and right. We were only a bit better in the middle but upfront and at thye back we made too many mistakes and too many careless passes. However we still won, a sign of a great team.

What some teams would consider as one of their best performance to Micho it is the worst, the day the rebuilding process finishes it will be the start of triple treble.

In June 2017 I remember Dr Khoza telling the media that he wanted to sign Micho in January 2017 but the problem became buying-out-clause. Dr Khoza also stated that since he got Micho, he is foreseeing Pirates going to the top. After 9 months(now) Micho is saying to be building and Pirates' fans are fooled by that. Kikikikikikikikikiki

My world-class stats book tells me that there is no other current PSL team coach as successful as Micho. Then, how come such a high profile coach tell the media that he is building the team?
