Sredojevic: It Is Humble Pie & We Cannot Cry

Milutin Sredojevic: It Is Humble Pie & We Cannot Cry

By Soccer Laduma - Jan 31, 2018 10:36 PM

Orlando Pirates coach Milutin Sredojevic admits his side ate humble pie, but insists they cannot cry about the loss.

Read: Zakri Brace Hands Ajax Victory Over Pirates

The Buccaneers had the lion’s share of possession, but could not penetrate the Ajax defence and were made to pay for their poor finishing and bad decision making in the final third.

“For the first goal they scored against the run of play at the corner-kick and that forced us to come out,” Sredojevic told SuperSport after the game.

“Then we carelessly lose the ball in the middle and they counter-attack for the second goal.

“At half time we were looking to regroup and pull the best from us, but we didn’t have the answer against a reinforced Ajax defence.

“In the modern game they call it the ‘Parked Bus’.

“We tried everything and we created chances, but it didn’t go our way. When you attack like we did then you are vulnerable to the counter-attack.

“The team will grow from this. It is like a small kid learning to walk – you walk some steps, some steps you slip but then you are stronger and stronger and stronger.

“I am not happy with the result. It does not reflect what happened on the field, but we need to accept it.

“It is a humble pie lesson and we must move forward.

“We cannot cry. We must go back to the drawing board and learn from the mistakes.”

How can u xpect to win? Playing without goalkeeper, Ajax had 3 shots on target and they scored 3 goals from all those shots. I you had goalkeeper maybe he would have saved 1 or 2 of those shots.

When I heard the news about loaning out Noordine I had a concern about creative players. Makola was the only creative player in the starting line up and can not be relied on because he is on and off form. Memela tried passing and playing with the team but wasnt enough. Nyatama can not shoot and found himself in good spaces which you would envy Makola or Noordine to be in and shoot. Shonga always had 2 or 3 players surrounding him. Maela and Memela should learn to use both feet. Greatest lesson is that we lack creativity, individual brillience and self belief in our players. otherwise good game but poor organisation

Hey guys open your minds.Parking or no parking bus means nothing.if you park the bus n score goals also win the game that's good as long you collect the points.also the teams are not playing same stayle so the game approach will be not same.if the parking bus will help you on that game there is nothing wrong

MiCow please coach don't eat too much of that humble pie one day it will stuck in your throat and you can die. Am not sure what do you mean by saying what happen on the field coz we all know what Ajax did, the Tshawe thing "as far as I'm concern" the Rat will know what I mean, kikikkikikikkiki.

Micho was against a more strategic, focused and shrewd coach in Mushin who understand and can read the game very well. Forget about the bus, and move it out of the way. Defense is another tactic to defend the lead. He brought Pirates back crashing to the mother earth.

This is how you beat a positional football playing team that is so infertile in front of goals, capitalize on set plays, give them all the space to run around like headless chicken then catch them on a counter. HIT THEM HARD ON A COUNTER................90% ball possession but the score line is 3-0
