Micho prepping for 'brain surgery'

Orlando Pirates

Orlando Pirates coach Milutin Sredojevic has refused to talk up their Absa Premiership title chances and insists they need to approach their final two matches “normally”.

Pirates are around 180 minutes away from lifting their first league title in seven years, with two tough tests against Cape Town City and Polokwane City ahead.

Though they have looked convincing in their quest, particularly in their last five games, Sredojevic wants his charges to remain grounded and clear-headed in what he has likened to brain surgery.

“It is not our style to threaten anyone and anything; we have the highest degree of respect, first to Cape Town City, second to Polokwane City and our direct competitors Mamelodi Sundowns,” said Micho.

“We need to say that it’s a test of character and measurement of value to see where we are at present, and I will just say that there’s a driving force and energy that comes from the supporters.

“Carrying that responsibility, you could see in my face, I count myself as a neurosurgeon at present, together with all the players that are supposed to conduct the operation ahead of us.

“And as such you have no time to be overconfident, or down, you just have to be normal with yourself and to find the formula.”
