Orlando Pirates coach Milutin Sredojevic has re-emphasised the role of their finishing coach, and says he is working tirelessly behind the scenes to help the team improve.
Pirates roped in the services of former French striker Stephane Adam ahead of the start of the season as they look to boost their goal return.
However four games into the season, The Buccaneers have managed to score more than one goal in a match on just one occasion – against SuperSport United, while failing to score at all in their midweek encounter against Bidvest Wits.
Such a low return for a team with a supposed expert in finishing is rather alarming, but Sredojevic has leaped to the defence of Adam, whose work he believes will soon bear fruit.
“In a complete aspect of providing, when you put the player of the field and tell him to play football, if you succeed then attack the goal, if you fail then defend the goal,” explained Micho.
“I believe that we are doing a complete product, however, that product now needs spicing from the point of angling, technique of finishing and all other related issues.
“We have thus designed a program where our new coach Stephane Adam is working every day with a different group of players.
“We are rotating them as part of a process where we are looking at how, as time goes, we can improve in that aspect and then real fruits will come through a much better conversion ratio.”
