Micho rates Bucs season out of 10


Orlando Pirates coach Milutin Sredojevic has shared his personal rating of the club’s season on a scale of 10 and admits it could have been better.

Pirates ended their campaign on a high on Saturday as they beat Polokwane City 3-0 at the Orlando Stadium, but still remain trophyless for a fifth successive season.

The Buccaneers, however, continued their steady improvement in as far as performance is concerned, leaving many of their supporters content and patiently waiting in anticipation of rewards.

Asked how he felt his charges did over the course of the season, Sredojevic gave a fairly good rating and said a better outcome in the MTN8 and CAF Champions' League would have been a near-perfect season.

“Perfection – 10/10 – does not exist. I would go somewhere, looking at this season, around seven-and-a-half out of 10,” said Micho.

“I hope I’m realistic in a way. If we had gone further in MTN8 and won that cup; if we had gone beyond the quarterfinals of the CAF Champions' League or won this, it could reach to nine or nine-and-a-half.

“But, like this, without anything to show, I believe we are on seven-and-a-half – realistically. I don’t know whether [this is agreeable].”
