Orlando Pirates coach Milutin Sredojevic praised his team for their efforts in last night’s 0-0 draw with SuperSport United in Nelspruit.
The result is a blow to Pirates’ Absa Premiership title hopes, leaving them three points adrift of leaders Mamelodi Sundowns (who also have a game in hand), but ‘Micho’ remained upbeat after the stalemate.
“We applied ourselves the way we agreed. Sometimes in football when you are not winning but inside us we are so happy with the face and body language of our players – they made us so proud," Sredojevic told SuperSport TV.
“They respect the jersey. They did everything possible to win especially in the second half. We tried from the right and left angles to create chances, but we couldn’t enter.
“We are proud of the effort from the players. We shall pick up this point and look forward."
The Serbian tactician added, “For us, it doesn’t mean anything. We’re extremely happy with the performance of our team.
“We shall critically look at the things and focus on the next match on Sunday against AmaZulu, a good ball-playing team.
“The game will be much more open. They will come out like two boxers ready to attack each other. I think people will enjoy Sunday’s game.”
