Who Vladimir Vermezovic should select for Orlando Pirates
Posted: 7 April 2014 Time: 14:55
I am a diehard Orlando Pirates supporter and I must say we have lost the plot under Vladimir Vermezovic.
I am not calling for him to resign, but I want him to be honest, look at players’ current form and tell us the supporters if there is interference or some back-stabbing relating to his job?
We, the supporters, need to know as the body language and expression of the players who VV has selected to don the Pirates jersey calls into question the players’ commitment and passion to the Ghost.
The squads that VV have selected are a mere shadow compared to the Pirates squad who not less than three months ago featured in not only two domestic cup finals, but the biggest club final on the continent, the CAF Champions League?
How can the same players drop form so badly? Anyway, our focus now turns to Saturday’s game and I hope we, the supporters, can get VV and the players to respond with a win.
My plan to VV is firstly to drop Senzo Mweiya and Sifiso Myeni from the starting XI. The squad I would start with: 1 Dauda, Matlaba, Jele, Mahamutsa, Sangweni, Manyisa, Masalesa, Ntshumayelo, Masuka, Erasmus and Majoro.
This is an attacking squad with steel in the middle, allowing Oupa to play his normal game, Matlaba to overlap, Masalesa and Ntshumayelo to cover midfield and defence, Masuka to do wing work, quality crossers and Majoro and Erasmus to strike. We will beat Sundowns.
Our bench should be Meyiwa, Segolela, Klate, Pelembe, Lekgwathi, Mapola and Gabuza.
