Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has made reference to a dance, ‘Idibala Challenge’, made popular by Limpopo-born hip-hop musician King Monada in his hit song ‘Malwedhe’, in explaining that he does not expect a defensive approach from Black Leopards in their match.
The Buccaneers will be in Limpopo at the Thohoyandou Stadium for their eagerly-awaited Nedbank Cup Last 32 match against Leopards on Saturday.
After the Absa Premiership match between Pirates and Baroka on Tuesday, much has been said about a concerning new trend by players for what is seen as time wasting antics, which includes spending time on the ground and appearing to require attention from their respective medical teams.
During Tuesday’s match, officials were forced to extend added time by more than 10 minutes, owing to time spent attending to Baroka goalkeeper Elvis Chipezeze and other players.
“We cannot read the mind of their coach (Dylan Kerr), (but) we are ready for any solution. Whether they are defensive or offensive, whatever it is, we shall find the balance and answer,” Sredojevic told the media.
“But bear in mind that football is played for the supporters. We wish to have as many as possible games where games are open, games are played for supporters, where we are not having ‘Idibala Challenge’. Football should be played the open way because we are there to give the soul food to the supporters and we expect that Black Leopards will come with such a match,” said the coach
