Pirates Coach On Deserving Bafana Call-Up

Milutin Sredojevic Has Revealed Who He Thinks Deserves A Call-Up To The National Team

By Soccer Laduma - Mar 05, 2018 12:33 PM

Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has revealed who he thinks deserves a call-up to the South African national team.

Luvuyo Memela scored a brace during Saturday’s Soweto derby, helping his side to an impressive 3-1 victory over Kaizer Chiefs.

With the player currently in impressive form this season, Coach Micho says that he is confident that Memela deserves to don the famous Bafana Bafana colours.

“I remember when (we) came and I remember first management interview and with all the hardships he has gone through with the injuries. I remember the first match played where so many people have blamed him for not giving the ball in one situation,” Micho told the media after the encounter.

“We have believed in him and given him full support, he has worked very hard and if anything is to go by, in this shape that he is in at present does not come from the sky. He has worked very hard, sweat, tears and blood. I request him to not be carried away. For me, I strongly believe, there are FIFA dates now in March if there is a justification, I present you, statistically from all possible angles that he is the player that fully deserves to wear the jersey of Bafana Bafana,” he added.

Obvious there's currently no player in the squad that can put him on the bench

NOT EVERY PLAYER'S CLUB PERFORMANCE WILL GUARANTEE NATIONAL STAGE, BEATING ZEBRAS IT'S NOTHING SERIOUS, TO ME IT'S ABOUT DEMOLISHING MEDIA, CAUSE ZEBRAS ARE USING MEDIA TO CLAIM AND SECONDLY WE ALL KNOW OUR PRODUCT(FOOTBALL IS WEAK) COMPARED TO GLOBAL STAGE, THAT IS WHY OUR PLAYERS(CONSIDERED BEST) DON'T LAST IN EUROPE

@kamuke, no...he is bargaining on behalf of his players, other coaches do it as well. We await to see if Sir Baxter will be moved.

@chiefs is useless, noted mate. You don't need politics to take centre stage at Bucs, things can get messy. I vividly remember Morrison 's unwavering support to Edwin Gyimah after the later had altercation with Coach Muhsin. Dr Khoza was unable to deal with the dispute to such an extent that he pleaded with Muhsin to come and help him deal with the matter, following the Coach's resignation.

@setlaboswana I don't see anything wrong about showing appreciation to your standout perfomer, if I remember correctly it's not the first time he's doing this he singled out Musa Nyatama he even said he calls him "Musalinho"

No ways!!!!!! Memela is way too casual 2 derby goals or not he is not ready for Bafana Bafana. We alrweady have 2 quality left wingers in Tau and Dolly and Memela is nowhere near those 2.

I PERSONALLY THINK IT'S PREMATURE FOR MEMELA FOR A NATIONAL CALL- UPS, HE NEEDS TO HELP HIS TEAM TO WIN SILVERWARES AND THAT WHEN HE DESERVE TO BE CALLED A STAR PLAYER OF AMABHAKABHAKA, AT THE MOVEMENT HE'S WINNING IMPORTANT GAMES LIKE ANY PLAYER, RONALDO,MESSI,TAU, THEY ARE CALLED STAR TEAM PLAYERS, THEY HAVE HELPED THEIR TEAMS RESPECTIVELY TO WIN CHAMPIONS LEAGUE, WE DON'T NEED TO PUT PRESSURE ON THE BOY, LOOK AT WHAT HAPPENED TO JOMO RAKHALE, BECAUSE OF PRESSURE

@setlaboswana mate have you ever heard of "Law of Inconvenient Malfunction" its Murphy's law that's the same principle that you are applying I still call law of inconvenient malfunction a scam but I do not in anyway dismiss your point...

@chiefs is useless, Bucs players are known of creating camps within camp, once that happens even the Chairman, Dr Khoza takes cover, I hope singling out Memela by Micho doesn't create rift as per your observations. I will still be around, mate!

@setlaboswana mate you call it unconditional love? And you believe it's gonna cause a rift ?I hold a different view ,Micho has picked up his play maker in the team like any coach would normally do, you guys have Percy tau ,which in my view is a star player in the team pitso laud him week in and week out, real has Ronaldo, Chelsea has Harzard the list goes on and on but it barley devide the team ,why would singling out memela cause a rift in the team ? Engage me mate...

@SL_hated_donkey, weight..plus flat footed is his biggest challenge, just that PSL strikers don't notice this. Hopefully Lorch 's illustrations have opened their eyes.
