Pirates lost 5-4 to Leopards after the game ended in a 1-1 draw at the Thohoyandou Stadium on Saturday.

“We need to go back to the drawing board to focus on the Champions League and the PSL,” Sredojevic told the media.

“It’s very unfortunate (after we had) the highe

st ambition to win this competition and to (lose) this way is very unfortunate, we said at half-time, football is not about what you deserve but what you get. It’s not all about playing the opponents but to look to outscore the opponents.”

Sredojevic added that they will now shift their focus to the Absa Premiership and Caf Champions League.
