Micho: We won’t speak on Downs

Orlando Pirates coach Milutin Sredojevic has respectfully declined to comment on Mamelodi Sundowns possibly being docked points.

The Absa Premiership title race is currently fever pitch as Pirates and Sundowns battle it out neck and neck, with the former having gained a slight advantage after going three points ahead in midweek.

The Brazilians, however, have one game in hand and could make up ground with a victory when they face Black Leopards in Thohoyandou next week Tuesday.

But there is also the much talked about issue around their possibly having a point deducted in the pending Disciplinary Committee matter relating to Wayne Arendse.

Asked whether the outcome should result in a point-deduction, Sredojevic refused to be led into the debate on how this could impact the race, and instead wished them luck in their CAF Champions' League semi-final encounter against Wydad Casablanca this evening.

“We want to leave our brothers from Sundowns, who throughout the season have spoken so much about us, but we don’t want to speak about this,” said Micho.

“We want to give respect to Cape Town City; we want to give respect to Polokwane City, and this is where our focus is.

“The rest of the things where we have no impact, and we have no impact on our brothers from Sundowns – we wish them all the best in representing the country in the best possible way. I wish that on Friday they will win in Casablanca and make the country proud.

“This is all we think about. The rest of the things we think only about ourselves.”
