Sebola: 'Micho mustn’t say that. It’s just mind games'
Orlando Pirates Are League Title Contenders
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.
