Sredojevic: Champions League should be normal

Milutin Sredojevic feels that qualifying for the CAF Champions League should be nothing out of the ordinary for Orlando Pirates.

After a difficult season in 2016/17, which saw them finish 11th in the league, the Buccaneers have bounced back this season to qualify for African club football's biggest continental tournament. 

However, Sredojevic, who masterminded Pirates' resurgence, has played down the achievement.

“From my side I will tell you something. I am happy that for the first time since 2012 we have qualified for the Champions League‚ where in 2013 we were in the final‚” Sredojevic said, according to SowetanLIVE.

“But in the same moment I need to say that it is nothing special where we are. This jersey‚ this badge‚ this team‚ these millions of supporters‚ our club‚ and a club of this magnitude‚ deserve to be here.

“It is something that is normal for us. It was an abnormal season last year.”
