Coach Micho Praises Pirates’ “Four Pillars”

Milutin Sredojevic Has Commented On Orlando Pirates 2017/18 Campaign

By Soccer Laduma - Apr 30, 2018 01:04 PM

Orlando Pirates head coach, Milutin “Micho” Sredojevic, has hailed the four pillars that he believes made the team tick this season.

The Buccaneers have claimed second placed position on the Absa Premiership league standings, booking their spot in the CAF Champions League next season.

This is seen as a huge improvement following their disappointing run in the 2016/17 campaign, before Head Coach Sredojevic took over the helm.

“First of all, I need to thank our chairman as a leader and management that they have provided us conditions from the point where we had all (the) necessary conditions to work very hard. (The) technical team that we have (has) come together - (the) players, they have worked extremely hard and they have really stretched themselves and all of us, sleepless nights and hard working days,” Head Coach Micho said after their 1-0 loss to Cape Town City on the weekend.

“We believe that this is normal and we have not done anything special, we believe that this is the standard that is supposed to be Orlando Pirates’ identity and presentation in the best possible way. In a conclusion I want to thank the supporters they have been with us, they have been our player number 12 throughout the season.”

“Four crucial pillars, our management, our technical team, our producers of performances - the players, I really need to praise them, they have really respected the badge, respected the jersey and given their best and of course supporters they have been that driving force and we felt their prayers and their support throughout the season, they have helped us,” he added.

I know at Bucs we don't settle for second place but I'm impressed with the improvements, for example, we won Q innovation for the first time, even all this small things means a lot, we appreciate everything

Its obvious the team was not balanced and you won't achieve anything with imbalanced team.Even in Africa they won't get anything.Secondly I want to admit that Pitso son of the soil is a BOSS.Who's fooling who here?What are these outside coaches doing here.Is it to get huge salaries for failure?Thanks Motsepe for believing in Mzantsi.The question about these foreign coaches remains unanswered.Look at Fadlu.People like khoza must learn from the best that if you get the right man and no interference success is there.

I really have to be a football fan right now and give credit when its due. Pirates is the most improved team for this season. well done coach, I respect you. You are not using favouritism, you put cows like makola, gandaganda and matlaba on the bench to eat ice, you are professional and have the balls, I wish you luck in champions league
