Micho: Bucs are a work in progress

Orlando Pirates

Pirates ended the year with defeat as they went down 2-1 to Ea Lla Koto at Goble Park on Saturday evening.

The Soweto giants dominated the match but squandered a number of opportunities to put the ball in the back of the net.

"In a game of football you have one easy thing and one difficult thing. The hard thing is to dominate to possess and attack against the numbers and to look to get results. The easiest is to defend in numbers against the run of play to get [the results]," the Serbian told SuperSport TV after the match.

"We have played competitively since August, absolute domination. We conceded an unlucky own goal [tonight] and I believe the second goal was a foul on the goalkeeper but it is not for me to judge, mine is to look at important facts.

"We are a work in progress and we have succeeded in teaching them [the team] how to play football. We have shown that we know how to play football but the only problem is to [differentiate] how to play football and how to get results.

"It's a process to be result oriented. We are not in a beauty contest. We are here for the results and this is what counts. We didn't deserve to lose today unfortunately football is like this, it's not what you deserve but what you get. We got nothing but we deserve more than what we got."
