Sebola: Bucs planning was not very good

Cape Town - Former Orlando Pirates striker Andries Sebola believes the club's lack of a clear plan led to their undoing against Etoile du Sahel in the CAF Confederation Cup.

The Buccaneers lost out in the CAF Confederations Cup final to Etoile du Sahel 2-1 on aggregate after a 1-0 defeat in the second leg in Tunisia on Sunday.

The disappointment is compounded by the fact the Sea Robbers suffered a similar fate in the CAF Champions League final against Al Ahly in 2013, which they lost 3-1 over two legs.

Sebola bemoaned the team's poor execution over the two games against Etoile du Sahel.

"The planning was not very good. The strikers lacked the supply to create chances and score. I think the absence of Oupa Manyisa also contributed to the lack of supply to the strikers," Sebola told Soccer Laduma.

"The other thing was the two central defenders were not composed enough to stop the opposition and the last one was the late substitution from the coach.

"He saw that the opposition put them under pressure from the first whistle but he waited for too long to make the changes."
