Orlando Pirates new coach Mulitin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic admits the fans can’t be any more patient following years of decline at the club.
The former Uganda Cranes coach was unveiled last Thursday and tasked with a job to ensure the Buccaneers get to where they belong – the top.
“At a club of this magnitude you cannot ask supporters for patience because there’s only one language they understand [winning],” he said as quoted by Kickoff.
“We are running against time and need to work in that regard and I strongly believe, with my capacities as manager off the field and football coach on the field that we will succeed in all the challenges in front of us.”
Pirates have reportedly had issues off the field in regards to player power and divided support from the management which have seen them decline in recent years.
Micho who is returning to the club after leaving over a decade ago says he has been promised the full support by the management and ready to use his management skills to avert situation.
“Everyone needs to do their own jobs. My job is I’m a football person and I have come here to solve the one million and one football problems I have seen in the match the other Saturday [against Kaizer Chiefs].
“I have seen room for improvement and space for development. I will deal with the football issues on the field of play and I believe that I’m a key player so I will give my full contribution in all capacities – from a coaching and technical aspect.
“I expect and have come here after being assured of full support from all structures within the club.”
