Orlando Pirates can go one better and win the Premier Soccer League (PSL) in 2018/19 that is what striker Augustine Mulenga believes. He said the players and technical staff were building on last season’s positive results.
The club has experienced something of a rebirth since Milutin Sredojevic was appointed as head coach. Before his arrival, the Soweto giants dropped to a lowly (and some say an embarrassing) 12th on the PSL log.
Sredojevic is preparing for his second season in command of Orlando Pirates and as part of an extensive pre-season training schedule taken the club outside of South Africa for the first time.
Briefly.co.za gathered that the Buccaneers embarked on a trip to Zambia a part of its rigorous pre-season training campaign. The club played four friendlies while abroad with a record of two wins and two draws.
Sport24.com reported that Mulenga said everyone at the club was motivated to pick up where they had left off at the end of last season.
He said Pirates came close to winning the PSL and as a team had learned valuable lessons which would stand it in good stead in the upcoming season.
Sredojevic has been fine-tuning his squad in recent times and has been ruthless in letting players who he had no use for go and acquiring other players to bolster his squad.
The club’s players, technical staff, management and supporters will hope that this is the year in which it ends the four-year trophy drought.
