Micho: This Is Why Bafana Aren't Going To The World Cup

Orlando Pirates coach Milutin Sredojevi believes that the Buccaneers' inability to finish is part of a countrywide issue.

Pirates dropped points for the sixth successive match in the Absa Premiership after drawing 0-0 with Golden Arrows on Tuesday evening.

The Serbian coach says poor finishing is a big let down for many teams in South Africa.

“This is why Bafana is not going to the World Cup," Sredojevic told SuperSport after the game.

"This is why we are not getting what we deserve from performances, but in a way, we just need to keep working on it and I believe in one moment we shall break through and find the way for that scoring problem," 

Sredojevic was also critical of Arrows' approach in the encounter at the Orlando Stadium.

“In a game of football, there are two things, one hard and one easy. It is very easy to park the bus, to defend and to counter-attack," he added.

"It is very hard to attack and close the counter-attacks. We really tried from the onset to play very much attacking. However, we could not find a way to convert what we have created.

"I believe, that every single player has given his not 100, [but] 200%. Unfortunately, they didn’t get rewarded. However, we need to continue working, to continue keeping clean sheets, to continue having domination in the game the way we had domination almost throughout the game, and I believe that possession was very much in our favour."
