Bucs Coach On ‘So-Called’ Hoodoo Teams
Orlando Pirates Take Aim At Platinum Stars
Orlando Pirates head coach, Milutin Sredojevic, is not concerned about the ‘hoodoo team’ tag associated with their opponents.
The Serbian tactician is confident that Bucs have prepared well for their upcoming Absa Premiership match this weekend.
The Buccaneers will be in North West at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium for their match against Platinum Stars on Saturday afternoon.
Speaking on Bucs’ official website, Sredojevic has explained how his team has dealt with some of the ‘‘so-called’ hoodoo teams’already this season.
“This season has seen us do away with ‘so-called’ hoodoo teams. I don’t believe there is such a thing as hoodoo team, it is just a mental block that has no basis in reality because we are a quality side. Therefore, the approach will be similar to the approach we had for Celtic and Sundowns.
“We are fully focused and determined to play a positive brand of football, with high levels of concentration throughout the match because this is an important game for us. For them, it will be a battle to move away from the relegation zone, and for Pirates, it will be a fight to stay within touching distance of the leading pack. This is an important match for us, too much is at stake and for that reason, we will leave it all on the field,” the coach has been quoted on the club’s website.
“Platinum Stars is the perfect match to give answers to whether we were complacent or, the reality that we faced a defensively well-organised Polokwane City. But as the Technical Team we are doing everything possible in managing partnerships, departments and our players as individuals in order to chase away any whiff of complacency in the team,” he said.
