Micho Proud Of Bucs, Despite Dropped Points

Orlando Pirates coach Micho Sredojevic, SuperSport United v Orlando Pirates, 11 April 2018

By Soccer Laduma - Apr 11, 2018 10:08 PM

Despite seeing his side drop two valuable points in the Absa Premiership race following a 0-0 draw with SuperSport United on Wednesday night, Orlando Pirates coach Micho Sredojevic said he is still proud of his players.

Although the Buccaneers controlled the flow of the game and dominated possession, they could not find the back of the net.

The result leaves Pirates three points adrift of league leaders Mamelodi Sundowns, who have a game in hand.

Still, Sredojevic was happy with his team’s performance and confident they will bounce back to winning ways against AmaZulu this coming weekend.

“In the first five minutes at the start of the match and near to the end of the game, we really applied ourselves. Sometimes in football you do not win, but inside ourselves we are so happy in body language and in-field of play,” said Sredojevic.

“Our players made us so proud because they did everything that was possible, especially in the second half. We tried from the right and the left to create chances, it didn’t enter but the effort of the players was something to be proud of.

“Now we move forward.

“The most important thing is that we played very well in the build-up to those chances being created. We played good in defence to not allow a point in counter-attacks.

“I am very proud of the players. It is not easy to play against an experienced team. We had the defence up because they are looking for a counter attack.

“In all three aspects of the game, the build-up, defence, closing the counter attacks and creating chances, we did very well. Unfortunately, the ball did not enter the net despite a player giving everything for the jersey.

“We shall look at the critique and focus on the next match on Sunday in Durban against AmaZulu. The game will be more open. People will enjoy that football. We are looking forward to that game.”

Proud of nothing you don't know what it means to coach pirates.If you don't listen you fail and leave disaster here.Who is going to collect that Rhulani is not working for pikitup.Supersport showed that experience is the best teacher while our good experienced players play and eat Pizza on the stands.Once again the bomb is about to explode

Tactically you lost the channel coach, what was the reason to bring back Makola?? 2, your sub over dube for Munetsi what were you thinking? You should have left Shonga until the game come to an end if you were seeking the goal. Eish this coaches sometimes they will bore you nca.
