Orlando Pirates head coach Milutin Sredojevic has apologised to the fans after the opening draw against Highlands Park in the Absa Premiership.
Orlando Pirates coach Milutin “Micho” Sredojevic has offered an apology to the Pirates faithful after the draw against the new boys on the block, Highlands Park.
Pirates only managed a 1-all home draw with the newly promoted club that is nicknamed the Lions of The North.
“Micho”, as he is affectionately known, expressed his sadness and disappointment after the event.
“I would say that I have the deepest regret, and I would apologise to our supporters for this situation that was very unfortunate. I do not remember, in a long time, when Orlando Stadium was this much full with supporters,” he said.
The Serb continued with his sincerely felt repent.
“To whoever had come, we deeply regret what happened. We owe them, and I have a sense that, with the effort of the players – they had given everything, but football is like that,” said Sredojevic.
The coach, who often displays a deeply emotional expression when things do not go particularly well, takes much hope from the many games that are coming in the season.
“Having in mind, this is a marathon of 30 matches, it is not good to be on this side to not have won something like we had planned. However, the blessing in disguise is that this is a league where you can still do corrections by way of collecting points when you have dropped some. We owe it to our supporters, and I need to put my hand up and say, in a way this is far from being the best that this team can do. We believe in the work we’re doing, we believe in the players and we know we shall do much better,” he concluded.
Have your say! What do you think?
