Micho promises to stamp SA authority

Orlando Pirates coach Milutin Sredojevic has set sights on stamping the PSL’s authority over Horoya after Mamelodi Sundowns and SuperSport United failed to do so.

Horoya are currently in South Africa for a third consecutive year after previously facing Sundowns in last year’s CAF Champions League group stage and SuperSport in the 2017 CAF Confederation Cup group stage.

The Guinean champions were twice held upon their visits to Tshwane, with The Brazilians registering a goalless draw and Matsatsantsa being held to a 2-2 stalemate.

Pirates, however, are hoping to change that by registering a victory at home when they meet at the Orlando Stadium for their Champions League group clash at 18h00 this evening.

“We are ready for whatever football could bring in front of us,” said Sredojevic as his side wrapped up their final match preparations on Thursday evening.

“We are playing against a team that has changed their coach from last year – Patrice Neveu, who was previously the national coach of Mauritania, whom I played against several times before,” he noted.

“It is a different type of coach from the French football school, similar to [Victor] Svunka, who was the coach last year against Mamelodi Sundowns and also the year before against SuperSport United in their Confederation Cup group.

“So, in four matches, our teams SuperSport had 0-0 away and 2-2 at home; Sundowns had 2-2 away and 0-0 at home, so we have still not won and it’s now a chance for us as a country to say, ‘Look, at home it’s not an easy task to come here in Johannesburg and dance in your own way.’
