Pirates are moving up - Vermezovic
Orlando Pirates head coach, Vladimir Vermezovic, has said that his team is back on track, after they beat SuperSport United 2-1 in the ABSA Premier Soccer League (PSL) match at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Sunday.
The Buccaneers have only played one game since the death of their captain and goalkeeper, Senzo Meyiwa, who was shot and killed in a botched robbery on the 26th of October.
They lost 2-0 to Matsatsantsa in the Telkom Knockout semi-finals on the 8th of November; however, Vermezovic said that he is delighted to have won Sunday’s game.
"The spirit we had in the first part of the season, which we lost after the first Fifa break, has fortunately come back," he said.
"It's been a tough schedule, but we are professionals and we like to play every third day, and now we're going to celebrate because the players deserve it.
"From tomorrow (Monday) we're going to prepare for the next game."
Sifiso Myeni scored the winning goal during extra time, securing the first win for Pirates since Meyiwa’s death.
The Buccaneers have now moved to the fourth position on the Premiership standings, winning five of their ten matches played.
