Micho Names Two Chiefs Players That Gave Bucs Problems

Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has singled out two Kaizer Chiefs players that he believes gave Orlando Pirates problems in their match at the weekend. 

The Buccaneers drew 1-1 with Amakhosi in the Absa Premiership Soweto Derby at the FNB Stadium on Saturday.

The result has left Bucs on 33 points and still in third place on the PSL log, behind Mamelodi Sundowns and Bidvest Wits respectively. 

Sredojevic has singled out Bernard Parker and youngster Happy Mashiane as the two players that gave Bucs problems in the first half of their match. 

“We had some problems in that first half in matching the way they stretched us with those two players wide, Parker and Mashiane and the two strikers. We resettled that answer tactically. At half-time we resettled and put ourselves in a shape that could help us be much more offensive and to close the opponent’s danger,” Sredojevic told the media after the match.
