Michel rues missed chances


Michel, who sat on Sundowns’ bench for the first time during the Absa Premiership game yesterday, watched in dismay as his charges missed some glorious opportunities, Katlego Mphela and Darion Monterio being the main culprits.

But despite the missed opportunities the Frenchman appeared satisfied with his team’s performance, terming it ‘a good start’ for himself as the Brazilians’ new coach.

“In the first half we played quality football and we had many chances to score goals. We created a lot of opportunities but failed to score.

“However, this victory marked a good start for me, and we have to build from this performance. We have a lot of work to do over next few weeks in terms of improving our performance.”

Speaking through an interpreter, Michel opted to play his cards close to his chest regarding his ambitions at Sundowns.

“I don’t have any ambitions except to make this team the best,” he said.

Michel also disclosed that he is expecting an assistant coach at Chloorkop this week, but added that he does not have a problem working with Trott Moloto or any other member of his technical team.
