Reader's Voice: Micho Receives A Very Stern Warning From A Fan

Uthini?

"I want to take on my shoulders all that is wrong and whatever is right, let the credit go to the players..." These are the words of Milutin "Micho" Sredojevic in the build-up to the game between Orlando Pirates and Namibian side African Stars in the CAF Champions League.

The Buccaneers' head coach has faced harsh criticism after a goalless away draw in the first leg of their CAF Champions League play-off fixture against African Stars. Soccer Laduma reader I Don’t Take Chiefs And Its Fans Serious gave the coach a very stern warning and said the blame will indeed be on Micho if Pirates loses this do-or-die return fixture:

“If we lose this important encounter, the blame will be all on you. What on earth were you thinking fielding such a weak starting line-up in the game of this magnitude?? We were supposed to finish that team off at home knowing that when we are heading to play in their own backyard, half of the job will be done here at home. But because of your complacency, you undermined them and fielded a weak starting line-up and it backfired, now we have a huge mountain to climb going into this second leg. You better make sure that we win this game no matter what, or else you might as well stay there for good and never come back to coach our beloved team ever again. I'm so fed up with you always giving us false hope. nxa.”

However, feedback to Micho's words was not all negative. His opinions have earned him the belief and sympathy of some fans as Soccer Laduma reader Aka-Sobho expressed his belief in the Pirates head coach and players:

“Micho, please don't be scared my coach, I believe the players know the importance of this encounter against African Stars in Namibia and will make us all proud and triumph on Saturday. All the best of luck heading to Namibia for a do-or-die encounter #OnceAlways.”

Soccer Laduma reader Ruud-Krol(mugabel) acknowledged Micho's efforts at Pirates but feels some of his decisions are detrimental to the club:

“If you fail to qualify for the group stage, don't dare coming back to SA. Coach, you've done a good job, but you tend to destroy your good work with poor team selections, you have too much faith in cows and that will cost you your job.”

Do you agree that Micho should take all the blame for his team's mistakes? Or is he trying to earn the public's sympathy should things go wrong? Let us know what you think and leave a comment below.
