Milutin Sredojevic: Orlando Pirates players are serving me a good Rooibos tea without sugar

Bucs went to top of the table for the first time this season despite drawing 1-1 with Usuthu

Orlando Pirates coach Milutin Sredojevic was left with a bittersweet feeling after they came from a goal down to force a 1-1 draw with AmaZulu at the Orlando Stadium on Saturday.

“I have mixed emotions. I don’t know whether I should cry or laugh in what we have done by creating chances but putting (the ball in the net is a problem). I’m really proud of the effort of the team, they really tried their best,” Sredojevic said post-match.

Ntsikelelo Nyauza scored at both ends in the first half, and as a result, stretched Bucs' unbeaten run in the league to four matches.

The goal-scoring element though continues to be a headache for ‘Micho’ who feels his charges are serving him a good Rooibos tea without sugar.

“I cannot even say to them one word - you can see in face language, in body language they gave their all. I told my players that, 'you’re very good with hospitality in South Africa, you’re serving me a good Rooibos tea but you’re not putting the sugar inside,” Sredojevic said.

Having won only four matches to date, the 48-year-old has lauded the effort of his troops, and is optimistic they will get the team firing again.

“However, I need to be strong. I believe in these boys. I believe in what we’re doing and I’m extremely proud of them. I want to thank the supporters for their support and we are sorry that we didn’t win. Unfortunately scoring is a problem,” Sredojevic said.
