There is nothing more dangerous than a wounded animal. This is the message that Orlando Pirates head coach Milutin Sredojevic has been drumming into his players’ heads ahead of the Buccaneers Absa Premiership clash against Bidvest Wits.
The defending champions may be enduring one of their worst starts in their PSL history however, the Bucs mentor is well aware that it only takes one match for a team to turn the tide and there is no better motivation for Wits than to do it against the Mighty Buccaneers.
Speaking to Orlandopiratesfc.com, the 48-year old tactician said: “Look, I have been on a consistent basis trying to remind my players of the task that lays ahead of us. We are professionals and in order to succeed as a professional you need to approach each match and each task in a manner befitting of the word.
“We are well aware of the task that lies ahead of us. We are not going to focus too much on what has been happening to our opponents prior to this game because what matters to Orlando Pirates and the extended family, is what we do on Saturday. Form counts for nothing on matchday, which is why we will not be underestimating our opposition. We will give them the respect they deserve and fight for the points on offer on the day.”
