Orlando Pirates midfielder Issa Sarr says the only way to get the team back to winning ways is by working hard and stop pointing fingers at each other following a poor run in the 2016/2017 season.
The Buccaneers went on a 12-game winless streak, which saw them register their first victory of the year in the Nedbank Cup over ABC Motsepe League side EC Bees in their last match.
“Look, when things are not working, it’s easy to press the panic buttons and change everything. This usually leads to a situation whereby you go from one problem to another. What is important during this time, is to stay focused and committed to the cause,” Sarr told the clubs website.
“There is no point in blaming each other or pointing fingers because this won’t fix the problem. We have taken this approach as players and have continued to work together to overcome the slump. We are a team after all, and we win and lost as a team.”
Sarr recently returned back from a month long injury, adds that there is a lot of change in attitude and thanked the club’s supporters for rallying behind them during tough times.
“I think even the supporters can see the change in attitude in the. It is only in the bad times that you know who your friends are and I have to thank our supporters for their loyalty because that helped us turn the corner and they have helped us through this rough patch. It takes just one good result to turn the season around and this is what we have been searching for.”
