Orlando Pirates head coach Milutin Sredojevic has explained how his team prepared for this past weekend’s match against SuperSport United.
The Buccaneers beat Matsatsantsa 3-1 on Saturday evening to move into third position on the PSL log.
Prior to Saturday’s match at the Orlando Stadium, Bucs had failed to beat Matsatsantsa since 2015.
Speaking to the media after the match, Sredojevic explained that Bucs used the FIFA international break well to prepare for the match.
“We prepared for this match very well using in the best possible way the time of two weeks of FIFA break. Players that played in the national teams of Bafana Bafana, Zimbabwe and Zambia had gone and the rest of the players worked very hard. When they (Bucs’ international players) returned we integrated them and prepared them very well for this match,” said Sredojevic.
“A document is not valid if it has no stamp and signature. In other words I would like to say in the six matches that we have played well we wrote the document, however, the signature and stamp were not there. Today we went with the intention to write the document – to play good football, to sign the document – to protect our goal and to put the stamp – to score the goals in order to win the game. Players have done very well,” explained the coach.
Pirates prepare to face Cape Town City in another home game at the Orlando Stadium in their next assignment.
