Having fought back to secure a 2-1 win over AmaZulu on Sunday afternoon, Orlando Pirates coach Milutin Sredojevic says they are not chasing the Premier Soccer League title.
The Serbian manager refused to talk about their title chances as they now occupy the second spot with 49 points.
Pirates trail the log leaders, Mamelodi Sundowns by three points, but Pitso Mosimane’s men will face Golden Arrows on Tuesday night to wrap up their games in hand.
The former Uganda national team coach preferred to talk about their upcoming match against Bidvest Wits at home.
With three games remaining to wrap up their 2017/18 season Pirates will face the reigning champions on Wednesday, April 25 and refresh the team as they have a 10-day break.
“People are talking of the title race, we are having one week and we’re playing against Bidvest Wits. We have 10 days until we’re playing them,” he told reporters.
“As we have that in mind, we shall use these 10 days properly to refresh, regroup and deeply correct and analyse what was wrong, what was right.
“We are improving ourselves and are preparing for the last three matches in the league.
“I’m extremely happy with these three points. We’ve made huge steps towards that place that is leading us to the CAF Champions League because Africa is waiting for Orlando Pirates to go to the Champions League.
“Regarding the rest of the things, except the match against Wits, we’ve no right to talk. Our full focus is on the match against Bidvest Wits.”
