Cape Town - Orlando Pirates coach Milutin Sredojevic believes that having a long term vision is the recipe for success as this means there will be greater focus and resolve.
Pirates managed a creditable 3-0 victory over Horoya AC in their CAF Champions League Group B tie last Friday which sees the Sea Robbers top the standings ahead of ES Tunis, FC Platinum and their previous Guinean opponents.
'Micho' explained that Bucs had done their homework in preparing for the clash against H.A.C., saying: "We have not gone and sent (someone to spy) we have seen everything, we have gone very deep back, players analysed last year's matches with Sundowns, with AS Togo.
"There are two matches that is ongoing in this champions league, one invisible match and one visible match."
The Mayfair-based outfit could also go top of the Absa Premiership standings on Tuesday night when they meet Baroka in a League clash at Orlando Stadium.
As such, the Serbian remains positive that come the end of the season there may be a good return on the club's investment.
He concluded: "I want to attribute to the huge investment, the players, and the technical team that has gone like never before.
"As my colleague, Rulani Mokwena says, an elephant is 18 months pregnant, and after 18 months he is delivering something', so we are waiting for the elephant to deliver."
