Orlando Pirates coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has taken responsibility and offered an apology for the Absa Premiership 3-0 loss to SuperSport United on Wednesday night.
Pirates were put to the sword at Mbombela Stadium by SuperSport in what was the club’s second game of the new Absa Premiership season.
“A tough competitive match, we owe our supporters an apology after losing in this fashion,” The Serb told SuperSport TV in the post-match chat.
“Maybe the crucial moment of the game happened we conceded the first goal, we were risking there and that put us in a position to go into the risk.”
Micho also took the moment to quickly look ahead to his team’s next game against Highlands Park in an MTN8 quarter-final battle on Saturday at 6 pm in Soweto.
“In anyway, I’d like to take the responsibility of this loss to myself. We need this 72 hours [before] our match against Highlands Park to regroup, go back to the drawing board and analyse. We need to inject new energy, have a shock therapy in a way. The second match of the season, but this is happening. Pirates had chances,” he said.
