Cape Town - An exciting brand of winning football is the ultimate aim of Orlando Pirates coach Milutin 'Micho' Sredojevic.

Sredojevic has brought fresh impetus to Pirates since his arrival at the beginning of the season and the Buccaneers occupy third spot on the table with 14 points from nine games.

He is aware, however, that supporters are looking for not only results, but that they also want to be entertained by an exciting brand of football. 

"We want to give double joy to our supporters; this means good football and positive results," he told the club's official website.

"Sometimes teams win but don't play a good brand of football and that is also frustrating for the fans. On the other hand, sometimes you play really well but don't win."

The Serbian accepts it will take time and hard graft to get Bucs where he wants them to be, but is pleased with the start that has been made.

"We are in the process of building and for that reason I can say that we [the technical team] were generally pleased with the performance of the team last week. Having said that, I also fully understand the expectations of our supporters.

"No coach joins this club blind of those expectations. This is why we are not ready to rest. We are working around the clock and it's only a matter of time before we get our systems in place. The supporters must understand that it is a process. We will get it right.

"We are pushing all departments to play with the brand of football that will excite supporters and make them happy," he continued.

"We are building a house here, and it starts with foundations before putting a roof on it. The habit of scoring has to be done through repetitions, and that's our aim as a technical team."

The Sea Robbers' next challenge is a last 16 Telkom Knockout fixture away to Golden Arrows at the Princess Magogo Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
