Micho: How I Tactically Won The Game Against Chiefs
Milutin Sredojevic Has Revealed How He Outsmarted
Orlando Pirates head coach, Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has revealed how he thinks he tactically won the game against Kaizer Chiefs yesterday.
The Buccaneers claimed an impressive 3-1 victory over Chiefs at the FNB Stadium on Saturday, March 03, with goals from Thembinkosi Lorch and two from Luvuyo Memela sealing a win for Pirates in the Absa Premiership on the day.
Speaking to the media, Head Coach Sredojevic has revealed in what parts of the encounter he outsmarted counterpart Steve Komphela’s side.
“We believe that tactically it has been a clash of in the first half, 3-4-1-2, in the second half we have introduced two number 10s with Memela and Lorch behind Shonga and that we had two of them, Lorch and Memela dropped to the middle so that we had no matter of Molangoane coming inside we had four-versus-four there and this is what brought the game in our favour,” he revealed.
“They were forced to come out, we punished them where we believed (it was) risky, with Rama overlapping from the right side. The last two goals we have scored from there and I believe that it is a tightrope, you are either going to heaven or to hell, we exactly exposed where we planned to and I am happy that players applied themselves in the best possible way,” he added.
