FOOTBALL IS a funny game- one day you’re a hit with the fans, the next you’re fighting for survival.
Take a close example at AmaKhosi, whom lately have been collecting maximum points thanks to the new formation and rotation of players.
Yes, it hasn’t and will not be a walk in the park for the Italian coach Giovannis Solinas, who at the beginning seem to be skating on a thin-ice and fans losing interest in his tactical application.
Voila, Kaizer Chiefs have thus far amassed 9-points from three games, that translates to motivation to the players and if, football was not a funny game as it is, would clean sweep all the silverware on offer.
Funny game is it, Orlando Pirates began the season on high but seem to be struggling.
I’m mentioning these two Soweto sides because the two carry hopes and dreams of millions fans in South Africa.
Albeit Bucs collected three-points against Baroka over the weekend, coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic says he has to work on the players’ body language especially when they’re down.
He was quoted post match: “We have seen inside their eyes, and as a matter of soul, we have seen inside their body language and face language that they were disappointed. So, in order to relieve themselves, we had this match… we put the same line-up to correct whatever was wrong and whatever was right to keep it up.”
Nine goals in four matches ain’t cool at all Bucs.
For Solinas, he should know the tradition at the Glamour Boys- winning is everything- albeit it won’t be easy.
For ‘Micho’ he has to work on discipline on his troops, finish & klaar!
Yep, a funny game this is…
