Sebola: 'Micho mustn’t say that. It’s just mind games'

Orlando Pirates Are League Title Contenders

By Soccer Laduma - Mar 05, 2018 04:14 PM

A former Orlando Pirates striker says Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic wants to win the league with the Soweto giants this season.

Despite doing well this season, Sredojevic has repeatedly denied that Pirates are focused on trying to win the Absa Premiership title.

Following their 3-1 win over Kaizer Chiefs, Bucs have accumulated 39 points, four points behind Mamelodi Sundowns, who are at the top of the log.

But Sredojevic said that Pirates are not thinking of the league title, while former Bucs striker Andries Sebola is of the opinion that Micho is challenging for honours. 

“Micho mustn’t say that (that Pirates are not thinking of the league). It’s just mind games. He wants to win the league. Pirates were out of the top eight last season. Micho wants to win the league.

“It’s pressure to Pitso (Mosimane) now. With Pirates beating Chiefs it has created a lot of pressure for Sundowns to win all their remaining games so that they can win the league. He (Sredojevic) wants to win the league and that’s one thing I know,” said Sebola.

Sebola leave Micho alone,he is Pirates coach and you are not, he doesn't want to put pressure on players. Cowmpela put pressure on his players after they won against small team by saying league is theirs, what happened after? Draw and a lose. Super Sub go and coach your own team, and leave Micho and Rhulani alone

micho said earlier that his target is 2nd,so that we can play ccl and winning the league is just a bonus since dunu and zebras are favourite to win the tittle

Micho is a competitive coach,with respect of his fellow coaches.He know that Sundowns will not just easily drop points to the stage where they are now.Sundowns is a well ogernised team with talented players to win anything.By that,Micho will never undermine the log leaders,as all chances gives them a green light.Unlike of Steve who want the league,but he is far from us by 4 points.How can Steve undermine Sundowns than Pirates?8point are a lot than 4,but still he see himself wining the league.Come on guys let us be realistic,and stay away from favors.#UP THE BUCS.

Hoooooo,hoooooogani.Don't be desapointed of what Sebola said guys.What's better singing the league wining song but being 8 point out of the race?Micho is happy to say what so ever he want to,the same with Sebole he see the job done by Pirates up to so far.As clever as Micho is,he will not put his players under uneccesary pressure about the league.The right time will come where he can change his torn.#UP THE BUCS.
