“It wasn’t possible to be at our best in our last match even though it was good enough to get a better result and we know it as well.” the Orlando Pirates coach said as quoted by Citizen.

“We don’t usually analyse the result, we try to learn from our performance. Obviously when you don’t get a good result you go deeper. This is because you’re hungry and disappointed.

“As coaching staff, we want to change the situation as soon as possible. We are all experienced in this type of process, players and coaches.

“And that we need to put even more emphasis on small details in order to be the team that we want to be.”
